In the 1980’s Jack performed national and international tours as jazz trumpet soloist with the Tommy Dorsey Orchestra, the Glenn Miller Orchestra, the Artie Shaw Orchestra, and the Woody Herman Thundering Herd.

After coming off the road he worked as a free-lance musician, playing in the pit orchestras for many shows at Playhouse Square, including Miss Saigon, Showboat, City of Angles, Man of LaMancha, Annie Get Your Gun, Guys and Dolls, Kiss of the Spider Woman, Anything Goes, The Sound of Music, The Color Purple, The Drowsy Chaperone, Hair, and Porgy and Bess.

Ohio born and New York based, Barbara Rosene has built an unequalled reputation for interpreting classic compositions, from all eras of Jazz, performing the music with not only a full understanding and love of the original time period but with the rare ability to make the material sound fresh and emotionally relevant today.

Barbara has toured with The Harry James Orchestra for the past 15 years, and has performed with The Glenn Miller and Artie Shaw Orchestras, as well as directing her own New Yorkers, playing such venues as: Lincoln Center's Rose Hall, Birdland, The Iridium, Dizzy’s, Mezzrow, Blues Alley, and The Montreal Jazz Festival.

Featured on NPR programs "Jazz Inspired", with Judy Carmichael, and "Hot Jazz Saturday Night." with Rob Bamberger, she is the recipient of a Backstage -Bistro Award, and is included in Scott Yanow’s book, “Great Jazz Singers.”

Barbara's studio albums include “Deep Night”, with Vince Giordano and The Nighthawks, “On The Brink”, with Wyclife Gordon, Howard Alden and Randy Sandke, and a Grammy nominated collection of -1920s/30s tunes - “Nice and Naughty” with her own New Yorkers.
