The Sudden Sound Concert Series showcases leading artists in the experimental music and avante garde jazz scene.

Bassist Stephan Crump brought together guitarists Liberty Ellman and Jamie Fox for the first time in 2004 to explore new work composed from fragments written in the weeks and months after 9/11. It was immediately apparent that this trio shared a unique chemistry worth developing, leading to their first release “Rosetta” in 2006.

Now, after repeated tours of the US and Europe, Rosetta Trio has issued its fourth title, “Outliers” (Papillon Sounds) in February 2019.
