“Robert Jospé and Inner Rhythm’s performance at Jefferson Center was fantastic! I still have people talking about the performance months later. The band was extremely tight and had wonderful energy on stage. The arrangements were top notch and they tastefully exhibited their chops on straight ahead jazz, Latin grooves, funk, beautiful ballads and even some African tunes! I look forward to working with this ensemble again in the future.” - Dylan Locke, Artistic Director, Jefferson Center, Roanoke, VA

Once again, we invited Robert Jospé and Inner Rhythm to appear as guest artists at the
2012 Wintergreen Summer Music Festival. The group is very popular with my patrons, and
they have performed multiple times for Wintergreen Performing Arts since my arrival as
Artistic and Executive Director in 2006.
Robert Jospé is always responsive to my programming needs. The performances are not
only musically superb, but they are presented in a way that draws the audience in . . .
teaching them many things along the way. If you want programs that are innovative, highspirited
and compelling, I urge you to book Robert Jospé and Inner Rhythm.

Morrison recently remarked about Jospe’, who has long been a supporter and crowd favorite of Jazz in the Park. “He has managed to keep the same fine group together for all these years through the lousy economy. They are absolutely the tightest jazz group around. Jos is a like some kind of nuclear reactor that feeds the whole band but never overpowers them.” -Lew Morrison, Director, Jazz in the Park, Staunton, VA, article by Bill Kramer,The News Leader, July 2012
