JazzTimes Reader's Poll 2020: Best New Artist
Jazz Journalists Association: Mid-Size Ensemble of the Year

Throughout its eight-decade history, Blue Note Records has been celebrated as a home for the leading voices in jazz. The label continues that tradition with the release of the self-titled debut from Artemis, the super group of seven of the most acclaimed musicians in modern jazz.

Beginning in August 2022, the band features pianist and musical director Renee Rosnes, trumpeter Ingrid Jensen, alto saxophonist and flautist Alexa Tarantino, tenor saxophonist Nicole Glover, bassist Noriko Ueda and drummer Allison Miller. 

The band initially assembled at Rosnes’s behest for a European festival tour three years ago. “I chose musicians whom I respected and wanted to make music with,” the pianist said, “and after performing together, I realized that we had a brilliant chemistry. We decided to explore the possibilities of what might develop over time. That’s how Artemis was born.”
