One year ago, trumpeter Daniel Rosenboom decided to do something crazy and founded a record label to support the growing number of musicians who prefer to be called “creative improvisers” rather than “jazz musicians.” They are not anti-jazz; it’s just traditional jazz enthusiasts might be anti-them. Today, Rosenboom is at the helm of a large vessel of innovation and creativity, cruising into the uncharted waters of establishing a high-profile creative music scene in Los Angeles. This Friday-Saturday festival features eight of Orenda’s best offerings, including pianist Cathlene Pineda, Michael Mull Octet, guitarist Alexander Noice, and Rosenboom himself in a band with Tedeschi Trucks Band bassist Tim Lefebvre.
