NPR reviews “Standards Trio: Reflections”
UPDATE: NPR today made Kurt Rosenwinkel’s rendition of Thelonious Monk’s “Reflections” the “Song of the day” – and gave the song an additional review. You can read the story and listen to the song by clicking here.
NPR’s (National Public Radio) Tom Moon reviewed Kurt Rosenwinkel Standards Trio: Reflections in todays “All Things Considered”. He starts out by saying that he was initially “dismayed” to learn that Kurt – a jazz “rebel” in Tom Moon’s words – would be making what initially appeared to be a traditionalist album. Without wanting to kill the suspense, I think we can reveal that this story ends well for “Reflections”. Check it out by clicking on this link here. For those of you that didn’t yet download the free sets from Kurt Rosenwinkel Band’s performance at the Village Vanguard (performing original music as opposed to standards) from January 2009 (with Aaron Parks, Ben Street & Kendrick Scott), you can also find the links to do so by clicking on the same link.
