Inherently jazz is about collaboration, the sum of the whole being greater than the parts due to the magic that results from improvisation when the chemistry amongst the musicians is right. That’s the approach jazz fusion guitarist Ron Bosse took to record “Burning Room Only.” The Boston-based fretman hooked up with Grammy-winning fusion icon, keyboardist Jeff Lorber, to write and record the eleven-song set produced by Lorber that dropped November 18, 2022 on the Deep Cat Records label.

“I highly recommend Burning Room Only to anyone that loves world class musicianship.” – Luke Wolk, Radio Guitar One
“I honestly cannot overstate what a good listen it is. It has all the elements that make it stand out from the sea of good guitar players that work within the many subgenera of jazz. The interplay between the musicians is as good as it gets and the production is flawless. Ron’s guitar is a masterclass in playing for the song while still pushing the boundary far enough to make his very capable voice be heard.” Luke Wolk, Radio Guitar One

“Bosse’s guitar brings a fiery edge to tracks that define the essence of fusion: jazz improvisation meets rock and roll abandon.” Jazz Guitar Today

“This radiantly flourishing new recording opens on the heartbeat of the album, the groovy, free flowing funk of ‘Bossman’ (his longtime nickname) and the majestically intricate ‘Power Drive’… my goodness, just listening to his fingers do the talking makes me exhausted!” Dr. Eunice Moseley, Exclusive Magazine
“Ron graces this recording with his deeply funky, groovelated chops, alongside other genre-busting creators, including Bob Mintzer, Jimmy Haslip, Jeff Lorber, Bob Reynolds and Gary Novak, showing why he’s been the choice of Dave Liebman, Mike Stern and Norman Brown, and received glowing accolades from DownBeat, JazzTimes, Guitar Player Magazine, The Boston Globe and The New York Times.” WBGO Radio

“Guitarist Ron Bosse delivers a sleek and soulful collection of originals with an all star cast of LA studio studs. He must have just gone into the Baked Potato one night and raided the joint, as the album included BP regulars like keyboardists Jeff Lorber, drummer Gary Novak, bassist Hadriend Feraud or Jimmy Haslip, and saxists Bob Reynolds and Bob Mintzer.” Jazz Weekly
