Enter Louis Rosen…with an intriguing collection of originals... Mellow in the good sense and fervent in the even better sense. A new minstrel of the dawn. (Jazz Weekly, Nov. 6, 2023)

Rosen’s music is what singer/songwriters use to write, full of blues riffs, uplifting swing, folk melodies, jazz cadences and soulful powerful lyrics. It is like an old soul left their words to impart. This night so made me want to hear his newest album “Love and Ashes”. Rosen is a musicians musician. (Times Square Chronicle, May 16, 2023)

Allow me to announce a new album, my 12th on Di-tone Records. The title: LOVE AND ASHES – the subject, well… love and ashes, or a particular perspective on living from a “seasoned” songwriter offered through eleven new songs, with music that walks further down the road that my music has been traveling for a long while: the synthesis of folk, jazz and popular styles filtered through a chamber music-inspired arranging lens, splendidly played by a first-class crew of musicians and brilliantly engineered and co-produced by my colleague of almost 35 years, the Grammy and Tony and Award winning Scott Lehrer. 

Accepting my natural bias, LOVE AND ASHES is my best song album yet. I think it speaks both from and to today. As a line from the title song sings, "The beauty of life and the heartbreak of living are one." I hope you enjoy listening.
