Jazz and salsa trombonist and composer Jimmy Bosch, also known as “El Trombon Criollo,” hails from Jersey City, N.J., and is known for his expressive playing style, marked by flaring melodies and soulful rhythms. He calls himself a "fiebrú" or "feverish salsa head" and continuously reinvents his music with his band, Sexteto del Otro Mundo ("Sextet from Another World"), coloring it with elements of Afro-Cuban mambo, American folk tunes, the Beatles, ‘70s New York salsa and contemporary rock. Also a charismatic musical director and bandleader, Bosch engages his audience by sharing the stage with his band members and orchestrating solo-movements for them to spontaneously shine.
While studying classical music at Rutgers University, Bosch met Manny Oquendo and joined his band Conjunto Libre, heralding his prolific career and extensive discography spanning over two decades. In 1998 and 1999, Jimmy Bosch and his band performed at major national and international jazz and world music festivals that launched Bosch’s solo career and his first album, Soneando Trombón. He has performed with artists such as Fania All-Stars, Machito Orchestra, Marc Anthony, La India, Steven Wilson and the Lebrón Brothers and he can be heard on over one hundred recordings. Bosch is an artist and clinician for Michael Rath Trombones and continues to tour as a solo artist and bandleader, imparting his years of experience with musicians all over the world.
