Blues-inspired hopefulness for the future!
“Kurt Rosenwinkel can say more in a few lines (of music) than most guitarists manage over the course of an entire career. A relentless explorer whose projects have ranged from solo guitar to orchestral settings, Rosenwinkel has staked out a singular position in jazz’s firmament as a player, composer and bandleader with a vast and supremely sophisticated harmonic vision and melodic sensibility.” –New York Times
“One of the most widely applauded guitarists of the under-50 generation, Kurt now presents a revised edition of his Standards Trio featuring Italian bass virtuoso Dario Deidda and Brooklyn’s gifted drummer Mark Whitfield Jr. Going beyond the adage of ‘what’s old is what’s new again’ — Rosenwinkel rebuilds timeworn melodies into statements as personal as they are unexpected, not with nostalgia for the past, but a blues-inspired hopefulness for the future.” –Chicago Tribune
This revised interpretation of The Standards Trio offers a clear view of Kurt as a jazz guru who has the polished robustness of a confident player, settling down to tell an even more intimate story.
