Grammy Winner Features Artist-in-Residence Rose

“Book One” by the New Orleans Jazz Orchestra, which won a Grammy award Sunday night, features UT Arlington jazz artist-in-residence Adonis Rose. “Book One” was the winner in the category for Best Large Jazz Ensemble Album.

After relocating from New Orleans to this area following Hurricane Katrina, Rose became a visiting professor with UT Arlington’s Jazz Studies program in 2007. He teaches jazz combo, drums and jazz history.  He also founded the Fort Worth Jazz Orchestra.

Rose serves as the creative director for Jazz by the Boulevard in Fort Worth, an annual festival in the tree-lined parks of the Will Rogers Memorial Center, and wrote and performed a composition for the 2007 Arlington Martin Luther King Jr. Celebration.
