“Javier Rosario is a powerful fusion-oriented guitarist who has the ability to play very fast, or slow down and state an original melody with sincere emotions. Javier Rosario displays a lot of potential on V2 Yes! …and it will be interesting to see in what musical direction he travels in the future.”

-Scott Yanow, writer at Los Angeles Jazz Scene


“This 7-track album showcases his both his playing and compositional work. The record begins with The Road Ahead which sets the scene via his overdriven agressive fusion electric guitar tone. It starts understated before going full-on legato crazy as the improvised guitar solo comes in.

-Az Samad

Javier Rosario Trio Vol. I: A Celebration of Life

"Javier Rosario is a truly particular musician, with his own personal vision and ambition. Iconically, he is perfect."

-Andrea Aguzzi, writer at Neuguitars's Substack 


"I first heard guitarist Javier Rosario a couple of years ago on an earlier album, and was impressed by his unique mix of metal and concise swing. This latest album of his, in a trio setting (co-produced with drummer Zak King and bassist Scott Kiefner), is even stronger as it includes a confidence and tighter group interplay than before."

—George W. Harris, editor at Jazz Weekly


"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

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.
