The Quintet performs Coss’ original compositions and arrangements, featuring five of today’s top rising musicians: Alex Wintz on guitar, Miki Yamanaka on piano and keyboards, Rick Rosato on bass and Jimmy Macbride on drums. The Quintet has headlined many major venues and festivals around the world, including the Newport Jazz Festival, NYC Winter JazzFest, and Earshot Jazz Festival. The quintet was selected as the recipient of the Emerging Artist Project, a four-year grant from the Local 802 Musicians Union. The quintet was also chosen as a finalist in the 2018 D.C. Jazz Prix, and has held residencies at SMOKE Jazz Club and Club Bonafide in NYC.
