Kurt Rosenwinkel

Guitarist, keyboardist, and multi-instrumentalist Kurt Rosenwinkel is a highly gifted performer with a fluid, harmonically rich approach to genre-bending jazz and rock. Born in Philadelphia in 1970, Rosenwinkel grew up in a musical family with parents who started him on piano at age nine. By age 12 he was seriously studying jazz guitar, a skill he perfected at the Philadelphia High School for the Creative and Performing Arts alongside classmates Christian McBride, Joey DeFrancesco, and future Roots drummer Questlove. He then spent two years studying at Berklee College of Music in Boston before vibraphonist Gary Burton hired him to go on tour. From there, he settled in Brooklyn, where he worked with the Human Feel quartet as well as such as Seamus Blake, Brian Blade, Mark Turner, and others. Along the way, Rosenwinkel earned praise from veteran guitarists like John Scofield and Pat Metheny, and in 1995 won a Composer's Award from the National Endowment for the Arts.

As a leader, he debuted in 1996 with East Coast Love Affair, followed by Intuit on Criss Cross. These were intimate, warmly performed standards albums that showcased the guitarist's growing creativity and knack for harmonically rich improvisation. Along with his early solo work, Rosenwinkel continued to perform with Burton and appeared on albums by Chris Cheek, Larry Goldings, Paul Motian, and more.

He then signed with Verve and embarked on a series of extremely well-received albums, including 2000's The Enemies of Energy, 2001's The Next Step, 2003's Heartcore, and 2005's Deep Song. Primarily centered on Rosenwinkel's original compositions, these albums detailed his highly inventive approach to post-bop jazz. Also during this period, Rosenwinkel relocated to Germany, where split his time between performing and teaching as a professor of jazz guitar at the Hochschule für Musik Hanns Eisler.

In 2009, he moved to the independent label Wommusic with Reflections, followed a year later by Our Secret World. Two years later, he delivered the expansive Star of Jupiter. As his profile grew, Rosenwinkel cut back on teaching, eventually deciding to focus completely on his performance career. In 2017, he also founded his own Heartcore label and released the Brazilian-influenced Caipi. ~ Matt Collar

'All The Way To Rajasthan' rocks my boat from the first time, though less since then, as with many things. For me, very special.

I started out with Kurt on his The Next Step project--I appreciate what Gary Burton did to help get a a fine career off the ground. His work with tenor man Mark Turner worth a listen as well.

Incredible guitarist, fluid and very sensitive to what's going on in the moment. I look forward to hearing more from him.
