O Rosenbergu:

Rosenberg has blossomed into one of the best creative saxophonists in America, François Couture, All-Music Guide

Rosenberg's wide-ranging works…are rewarding both intellectually and physically, offering equal parts humor and seriousness, complexity and simplicity…[He] is following in the footsteps of artists as divergent as noise act Merzbow and new music maverick John Cage, forward thinkers who have organized pieces outside the formal construct of melody, Sam Prestianni, SF Weekly

A master manipulator of saxes and clarinets, East Bay Express

Rosenberg spent most of 2000 busting his ass on behalf of a new generation of Chicago workaholic improvisers.
Monica Kendrick, Chicago Reader

Rosenberg is a key player in the thriving improv and new-music scenes, SF Bay Guardian

[Rosenberg is] a fine saxophonist with pinpoint control, (Neil Tesser, Chicago Reader

O Rosenberg's Skronktet:

Groups like the Rosenberg Skronktet blur the line between jazz (or open improvisation) and chamber music….The cast deftly varied the music's density and color from minute to minute... There was a lovely moment in one raunchy episode when oboe and vibes emerged playing a scored snowfall of pretty notes. At another juncture (improvised, I think), a melody was passed in a blink from alto sax to Butters' slide whistle to violin to oboe, a feat that sounded perfectly natural, even offhand. To pull off such quiet stunts involves intense concentration and lightning reflexes….Anyone interested in how creative music develops will want to keep an ear on their progress.
Kevin Whitehead, The Sun Times

O pracach solowych:

His versatility in interacting with himself is admirable. Chicago Reader

Don't be surprised if Rosenberg disassembles his horn… and huffs into apertures God never intended, bringing wind tunnels and hurricanes into your previously sheltered cranium, Greg Burk, LA Weekly
