Rose has been described as “one to watch on the Australian jazz scene” (Jazzwise, UK), “one of the most creative and restless musicians in the Australian jazz scene” (, “a brilliant jazz composer and instrumentalist, a young man with a social purpose” (The Australian), and “a bold, emerging Aussie voice” (Limelight Magazine).
