2015–16 Jazz Series

Kurt Rosenwinkel New Quartet

Friday, May 13, 2016 • 8 p.m.

There are artists who uphold what’s already been defined in music and then there are artists who do the defining. Guitarist, composer and educator Kurt Rosenwinkel undisputedly sits among the trailblazers in the latter group. He favors floating lyricism, a luminous tone and an ultramodern harmonic language, all reasons for his stature as one of the young gurus on his instrument. His New Quartet is first and foremost a showcase for his bond with pianist Aaron Parks, who appears here along with bassist Eric Revis and drummer Allan Mednard. Rosenwinkel’s career spans almost twenty-five years, and features collaborations with dynamic peers like Brad Mehldau, Brian Blade, Mark Turner, Joshua Redman, Chris Potter; and esteemed jazz elders like Joe Henderson, Paul Motian and Gary Burton.

“An attractive, largely nostalgic approach to jazz standards that surely merits hearing.”
—Chicago Tribune
