Interviews

Kurt Rosenwinkel: Reflections from Berlin

By Published: December 9, 2009
AAJ: You included only one composition of your own, something you have been playing for quite a while. Why just one, and why this one?



KR: I felt that this one song of mine fits with this repertoire and perhaps I like the fact that its presence illuminates my idea of what a standard is, or what music and tradition are—a continuum!

AAJ:What are you most satisfied about the project?

KR: I guess I am happy about having made a ballads album without having planned to make one.

KR: Do you have another project in mind already?

AAJ: I have many things in mind and in development. The next thing is a big band album of my music.
