Born in New Jersey, Bosch began playing the trombone at age 11 and later studied classical music at Rutgers University. In 1998, he made his official debut with the release of “Soneando Trombon”. Now a longtime member of the New York jazz and Latin music scenes, Bosch has performed with the Fania All-Stars, Eddie Palmieri and Ruben Blades.


Launched in 1978, the Jazz Room is one of the largest and most prestigious college-sponsored jazz events in the country. Performers include renowned professionals who encompass the complete spectrum of jazz, as well as William Paterson’s own student ensembles. The series has won numerous grants from the New Jersey State Council on the Arts for its innovative programming.
