Artemis is a multi-generational, internationally represented supergroup made up of seven of the most acclaimed musicians in modern jazz.

The band comprises pianist and musical director Renee Rosnes, trumpeter Ingrid Jensen, clarinetist Anat Cohen, tenor saxophonist Melissa Aldana, bassist Noriko Ueda, drummer Allison Miller, and featured vocalist Cécile McLorin Salvant.

Each member has received awards and accolades, each is a renowned composer and bandleader in her own right, and each is considered a master of her instrument.

Blue Note president Don Was says “their musical conversation is sophisticated, soulful, powerful, and their groove runs deep.”

In their relatively short history, they’ve been featured in Vanity Fair, on NPR’s Jazz Night in America and at standout stages like Carnegie Hall and the Newport Jazz Fesival. They’ll release their highly anticipated self-titled debut album on Sept. 11.

Rosnes spoke to us about how the band came together and explained their collaborative approach to making music.
