“Rosenboom is a phenomenon…His speed and singing high notes are amazing. He is a cool customer onstage, but what comes out of the mouthpiece is red hot.” - Mark Swed – Los Angeles Times
“Spectacular trumpet soloing…mesmerizing…” - BLG – Downtown Music Gallery
“Daniel Rosenboom’s trumpet and electronics tour de force Evolution caputres all the gravity of ’70s prog rock with a dramatic flair of Freddy Mercury -proportions…Rosenboom goes for the jugular both rhythmically and melodically, running through time signatures like a box of Kleenex at an AA meeting.” - Randy Nordschow – New Music Box
