Kurt Rosenwinkel

Following a string of three acclaimed recordings for Verve Records that firmly established him as one of the most strikingly original new voices in jazz as both guitarist and composer (2000’s The Enemies of Energy, 2001’s The Next Step and 2003’s Heartcore), Kurt Rosenwinkel returns with an all-star outing that is perhaps his most luminous and accessible to date. Joined by his high-profile colleagues Brad Mehldau on piano and Joshua Redman on tenor sax, along with Larry Grenadier on bass and either Ali Jackson or longtime associate Jeff Ballard on drums, Rosenwinkel plumbs the depths of emotion and lyricism on Deep Song. From dynamic new renditions of older compositions like the chops-busting “Synthetics” (from The Enemies of Energy) or the gentle and evocative “Use of Light” (from The Next Step) to hauntingly beautiful interpretations of the standard “If I Should Lose You” and the melancholy Billie Holiday vehicle “Deep Song, ”Rosenwinkel unleashes his typically cascading, sonorous guitar lines with newfound authority

This set is a call back to the Kurt Rosenwinkel Standards Trio's Reflections (WOMMUSIC, 2009): a selection of mostly modern jazz standards, played ...

Two 4 Five: Compelling Quintets on Losen Records

Read "Two 4 Five:  Compelling Quintets on Losen Records" reviewed by Friedrich Kunzmann

One quick look at the instrumentation of the two new quintet recordings out on Norwegian label Losen Records reveals several similarities. A significant difference however lies within the chordal duality on the first album and the melodic one on the second. Nevi, a Turkish-Russian collaboration, issues the former duality, demonstrating a more atmospheric approach to modern ...
