About

Kurt Rosenwinkel (born October 28, 1970) is an American jazz guitarist and keyboardist who came to prominence in the 1990s. With a career spanning almost twenty-five years, collaborating 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, Rosenwinkel’s indelible mark in music is the consummation of being steeped in the rich and deep traditions of jazz, springing off of the shoulders of such vital underpinnings to elevate his own art to new heights, evolving the language in a way no other guitarist has since his arrival.

News

Greetings fellow travellers, Its the dog days of summer, usually its terribly hot and overbearing, but since I live in Berlin its cool and mild, sometimes rainy and overcast. I dont mind. I’m off to play with Human Feel this weekend in Saalfelden, Austria. I love Human Feel. Then I go right to the Village Vanguard where I am playing trio with an amazing bassist, cant tell you his name, and a drummer I am excited to play with for the first time, Lawrence Leathers. I always look forward to playing at the Vanguard, a Grand Temple of Jazz in Mecca- NYC. Then its Bandit 65, our new Co-led group with Tim Motzer and Gintas Janusonis. We have been having extraordinary times together musically and I am so excited about playing in the States after two Europe tours. Look for us in Boston, Philly, Montreal, Vermont, and L.A.


There is alot more very exciting news coming soon. Have been working very hard this year and going through major transformations, a renewal and rearrangement of the fundamental elements of life, or something like that… Stay Tuned!
