Kurt Rosenwinkel Standards Trio in Asia
Kurt Rosenwinkel Standards Trio (w. Matt Clohesy and Rodney Green) started off their Asian tour in Jakarta, Indonesia yesterday at the Java Jazz Festival. The festival is a mix of jazz and pop acts, ranging from John Legend, Toni Braxton over artists like Lee Ritenour and George Duke to Christian McBride, Kurt and a few other hard-core jazz acts.
The shows are held in the giant Ji-Expo conference area, the venues are huge but the audiences almost surprisingly hip to the music. When Kurt’s show at the Java Jazz festival was announced, it generated more tweets on twitter than any other single show we’ve ever had!
Tonight Kurt will hold a masterclass clinic, and tomorrow the tour goes to Japan where Kurt, Matt and Rodney will perform in Osaka, Nagoya, Yokohama and 3 nights in Tokyo (at 2 different venues). If you are around please stop by to say hi!
