Fort Worth’s Adonis Rose Shares Grammy

Posted February 17, 2010 by Anthony Mariani in Blotch

Fort Worth-via-New Orleans jazz drummer and bandleader Adonis Rose played on the album that won the Grammy in the Best Large Group/Ensemble jazz category –– Book One, the debut album by the 20-piece New Orleans Jazz Orchestra –– beating out, among other nominees, UNT’s One O’Clock Lab Band’s Lab 2009. Book One, according to the NOJO, “explores post-Katrina stagnation, the ongoing financial crisis, and falling in love.” Congrats to the orchestra and Rose, who plays a funky, New Orleans-influenced show with his Krewe of Swing every Wednesday night at Scat Jazz Lounge in Sundance Square.
