Kurt Rosenwinkel é um verdadeiro ícon da guitarra jazz no século XXI, responsável pela mais significativa evolução do seu instrumento no jazz e porventura o mais influente guitarrista das duas últimas décadas!
Tendo dado os primeiros passos no sentido de uma carreira internacional como sideman de Gary Burton, Rosenwinkel cedo se iria apresentar ao lado de nomes clássicos do jazz como Joe Henderson ou Paul Motian (na famosa Electric Bebop Band), além de fundar o Human Feel com Chris Speed, Andrew D’Angelo e Jim Black.
Tocou com Seamus Blake, Chris Cheek, Chris Potter e Brian Blade e estabeleceu com Mark Turner (ora com, ora sem Brad Mehldau) uma das mais marcantes e influentes parcerias do jazz contemporâneo.
Numa recente e surpreendente reviravolta na sua carreira, Rosenwinkel realizou o sonho, que há mais de uma década o perseguia, de juntar a inspiração dos sons do Brasil a um jazz que se apelidaria de metafísico, polvilhado, aqui e ali, com alguma efervescência do rock e da brit-pop, de onde resultou uma música de extrema originalidade e deliciosamente futurista.
Kurt Rosenwinkel is a jazz guitar icon of the 21st century and certainly one the most influential guitar players of the last twenty years, evolving the language in a way no other guitarist has since his arrival.
Starting an international career as a sideman to Gary Burton, Rosenwinkel would soon start playing with renown jazz stars such as Joe Henderson and Paul Motian, also founding the quartet Human Feel with Chris Speed, Andrew D’Angelo, and Jim Black, and playing with Seamus Blake, Chris Cheek, Joshua Redman, Chris Potter, and Brian Blade, and being featured in more that 80 recordings.
In the late ‘90s, Rosenwinkel started an invigorating partnership with saxophonist Mark Turner, which often included the pianist Brad Mehldau and was to become one of the most influential musical units in contemporary jazz.
In a surprising twist in his career, Kurt’s new project – “Caipi” – was inspired by Brazil’s music, fusing it with an exquisitely “metaphysical” sort of jazz and the energizing ebullience of the best brit-pop, the result being as highly personal and original as it is fascinatingly futuristic, charming and accessible yet daring and thought-provoking.
Kurt Rosenwinkel is a genius - he really is.
(...) a staggeringly good album of heart-warming, memorable tunes. Eric Clapton is quoted as saying "Kurt Rosenwinkel is a genius - he really is." Slowhand's not wrong; he is indeed one seriously talented dude.
All About Jazz
Kurt Rosenwinkel's music is the future of jazz - just like bebop once was.
One of the leading lights of contemporary jazz guitar and perhaps the most influential six-stringer of his generation, Kurt Rosenwinkel has enjoyed a successful career which has seen a slew of acclaimed releases (...)
(...) how does Rosenwinkel deal with the quasi guitar-god stature he commands among post-Generation X jazz devotees, who regard him as a kind of bridge between such Baby Boomer icons as Pat Metheny, John Scofield and Bill Frisell and increasingly visible just-thirties like Mike Moreno and Lage Lund?
