Melissa Aldana: Back Home

Read "Back Home" reviewed by Vincenzo Roggero

Back Home, quarto disco da leader di Melissa Aldana, sassofonista cilena vincitrice del prestigioso Thelonious Monk International Jazz Competion 2013, ha tutte le caratteristiche per diventare un piccolo classico del genere.

Melissa Aldana: Back Home

Read "Back Home" reviewed by Mark F. Turner

Saxophonist Melissa Aldana leaves an indelible impression of her musicality in Back Home, her fourth release as a leader. She was the first female instrumentalist and first South American to win the Thelonious Monk International Jazz Competition in 2013.

Kurt Rosenwinkel: Star of Jupiter

Read "Kurt Rosenwinkel: Star of Jupiter" reviewed by John Kelman

How time flies. While he's been busy with a number of other projects--his collaboration with the Portuguese Orchestra de Jazz de Mataosinhos on the ambitious Our Secret World (Wommusic, 2010) and the intimate, standards-laden Reflections (Wommusic, 2009)--it's been four years since guitarist Kurt Rosenwinkel last released a small group record focusing largely on new original music. ...

With the creative possibilities offered by its expanded palette, it's no surprise that so many artists who traditionally work in the context of more pliant, small ensembles turn to larger settings at least once in their career. For those already predisposed to ...

Kurt Rosenwinkel Standards Trio: Reflections

Read "Reflections" reviewed by John Kelman

After the incendiary The Remedy: Live at the Village Vanguard (ArtistShare, 2008), guitarist Kurt Rosenwinkel returns with Reflections, an intimate, ballad-heavy album that couldn't be more different. On the surface, with a set largely composed of standards, and trimmed down to a trio from the quartets and quintets of his past few years, it might appear ...

Kurt Rosenwinkel Standards Trio: Reflections

Read "Reflections" reviewed by Mark Corroto

Like an Ian McEwan short story, guitarist Kurt Rosenwinkel can say more in a few lines than most guitarists manage over the course of an entire recording. On Standard Trio: Reflections he inscribes his signature sound on a set of ballads--all classic tunes except for one original.

His trio of bassist Eric Revis and drummer Eric ...

Kurt Rosenwinkel: The Remedy

Read "The Remedy" reviewed by Wilbur MacKenzie

This live double CD is Kurt Rosenwinkel's seventh record as a leader and the first to be released on ArtistShare, following five releases on Verve. Such high profile output is notable even without taking into consideration the other forty or fifty releases he's appeared on since his auspicious early departure from Berklee in the early 1990s ...

Kurt Rosenwinkel Group: The Remedy: Live at the Village Vanguard

Read "The Remedy: Live at the Village Vanguard" reviewed by John Kelman

It's been over a decade since Kurt Rosenwinkel's last live album. East Coast Love Affair (Fresh Sound New Talent, 1997) was the guitarist's first as a leader, and much has happened since then. Over the course of five additional albums and countless appearances as a guest on albums by artists including saxophonist Mark Turner and drummers ...

Kurt Rosenwinkel Group: The Remedy: Live at the Village Vanguard

Read "The Remedy: Live at the Village Vanguard" reviewed by Mark F. Turner

It's been a couple of years since Kurt Rosenwinkel's previous release, Deep Song (Verve Music Group, 2005). But as one of modern jazz's most dynamic guitarists, having earned respect and applause from critics and fans, he's back with the stellar double CD, The Remedy: Live at the Village Vanguard.

Recorded live and unedited ...
