Javier Rosario Trio Vol. I: A Celebration of Life
"With an overflowing passion for music and outstanding talent, Javier Rosario is a Dominican who is emerging as an eminent guitarist." —Bethania Ortega, Listín Diario on May 25, 2008
"Excellent Dominican guitarist."
—Fernando Rodriguez De Mondesert,
Jazz en Dominicana
"Guitarist Javier Rosario goes both electric and acoustic on this muscular and musical collection of originals in a trio format with drummer Zak King and bassist Scott Kiefner. As palpable as Rosario’s tone is while plugged in for the trio format, his solo material is tender and patient. The combination of assertive trio and impressionistic unplugged moments makes for rewarding listening for jazz guitar fans and aficionados."
—George W. Harris, editor at Jazz Weekly
In early 2022, Javier's most recent interview with Dominican jazz writer and promoter, Fernando Rodriguez De Mondesert, was published in the book The Interviews "Las Entrevistas" 2021 Jazz en Dominicana. The book is a collection of interviews of the most prestigious Dominican musicians on the scene today.

“Ghost Town is a powerful opening tune, where the bandleader interweaves expressive voice leading, pungent chords, and crystalline harmonics with unflinching confidence. Following a clearly pronounced bass solo, Rosario plunges into a distorted metal-like spiral, whose broad dirty sound evolves until reaching the tidal chordal washes that conclude the piece." —Filipe Freitas, JazzTrail Writer
At the end of 2017, Javier made a record with pianist, Matt Savage and his newest band, Groove Experiment. A year later, Splash Variations was released. Enjoy the video promotion and get yourself a copy of this wonderful record! Javier plays specifically on tracks 2, 3 & 6.
