Kurt Rosenwinkel Trio at the Jazz Showcase 4/17-20 Print E-mail

“Rosenwinkel’s music represents the sound of the future, just as bebop once did.”  -Howard Reich, Chicago Tribune

Kurt Rosenwinkel
A guitarist whose harmonic ideas and sinuous, legato approach make him readily identifiable, Rosenwinkel is perhaps the most beloved jazz guitarist of his generation. Here’s what guitar legend Bill Frisell said about Kurt Rosenwinkel: “There’s this kind of fluidity and architecture in the lines that he plays that I don’t think I’ve heard anybody else do. There’s a mystery in it to me. It’s not obviously derived from some other player. He’s really developed his own language with the musical information and physically the way he’s playing the instrument.”

The Kurt Rosenwinkel trio will apprear at the Jazz Showcase in Chicago on Tursday, April 17th through Sunday, April 20th with sets at 8:00 p.m. and 10:00 p.m. nightly plus an additional 4:30 p.m. show on Sunday.
