“Kurt Rosenwinkel’s music is the sound of the future – just like Bebop once was” (Howard Reich, Chicago Tribune)
Kurt Rosenwinkel -][- STAR OF JUPITER (Double Disc) – [WOMMUSIC, 2012]
Philadelphia-born jazz guitarist/composer Kurt Rosenwinkel first earned attention playing alongside such iconic artists as Gary Burton, Paul Motian, and Joe Henderson. Star of Jupiter marks Rosenwinkel’s first quartet recording in more than a decade, following 2001’s groundbreaking The Next Step. Here the National Endowment for the Arts Composer’s Award-winner offers a contemporary variation on that classic ensemble work with a stellar new band that includes pianist Aaron Parks, bassist Eric Revis, and drummer Justin Faulkner.
An intricately conceptualized collection of original compositions (all but one previously unrecorded), Star of Jupiter transports listeners on a remarkable journey toward transcendence. Kurt Rosenwinkel once again displays the vision and brave artistry that place him among the most influential and inventive guitarists and composers in music today. -[Editorial Review | Amazon]-
