Jimmy Bosch, who was born to parents from Arecibo, Puerto Rico, was raised in Hoboken, NJ, lived in the Bronx, NY for twenty years, played in Salsa bands from the age of 13, and continuously re-invents the music of a culture with roots in many parts of the world.

Tropical Music with a New York edge is unlike any musical experience anywhere. Once exposed to the Jimmy Bosch experience, there is no turning back to anything less. This is commonly the response from many people around the world as the band journeys throughout Europe and the United States.

Bosch began playing trombone in 1970, and at age 13 this prodigious talent discovered the power of releasing energy through improvisation. Bosch frequented clubs in New York City with his trombone in hand.

In 1978, while a student at Rutgers University, he was hired by Andy Gonzalez to work with Conjunto Libre, heralding the birth of a prolific career and extensive discography spanning well over two decades.

Bosch has collaborated with the most stellar figures in Salsa including Cachao, Celia Cruz, Eddie Palmieri, Ray Barreto, the Machito Orchestra, Rubén Blades, Fania All-Stars, Willie Colón, Oscar D’Leon, and Marc Anthony.

Landmark recordings in Salsa feature Bosch’s inimitable verve, and place him in the center of the Latin music movement. His figurative expressions in Salsa Clásica with Ray Barretto are his trademark.

Bosch cements his relationship with the traditional yet intense horn sections of large Salsa bands on recordings such as the Machito Orchestra – "Jammin’ in the Bronx," Libre – "Ritmo, Sonido y, Estilo," Caiman All-Stars – "Descarga in New York," and Cachao "Master Sessions, Vol.

I and II." Additionally, Jimmy’s solos are essential contributions to productions such as "Tras la Tormenta" with Willie Colón and Rubén Blades, and Victor Manuelle’s "Ahora Me Toca a Mi."In 1998/1999, Bosch and his band were invited to the most prestigious national and international Jazz and World Music festivals.

Their extraordinary performances launched Bosch’s solo career and initial recording, Soneando Trombón at major venues such as: Lincoln Center (New York City), North Sea Jazz Festival (Holland), Montreal Jazz Festival (Canada), Umbria Jazz Festival (Italy), Sidney Festival (Australia) and countless other Jazz, World Music and Salsa festivals around the world.

In his concerts and recordings, Bosch, a charismatic musical director and bandleader, engages his audience by generously sharing the stage with his highly accomplished and veteran band members. While audiences revel in his unbridled creativity, Bosch graciously defers to his all-star band and orchestrates "solo-movements" for them to spontaneously shine; but more importantly, to climax with multiple moments where all are acknowledged, appreciated, and celebrated.

Bosch is and will continue to be hailed by international audiences and critics, from New York to Puerto Rico, France, England, Belgium, Spain, Holland, and countries throughout Latin America. To this day he calls himself a "fiebrú" (a feverish salsa head) and recognizes that he emerged both as an artist and a musician from his magical ability to impart his contagious passion.

Bosch, a composer and a lyricist, is one of the most explosive and versatile trombonists of his generation. With his second album entitled "Salsa Dura," he re-energizes and infuses this musical expression and builds upon his triumphant 1998 debut, Soneando Trombón on the RykoLatino label.
