The meaning behind the headline is to convey the sense that while music obviously can never be “reduced” to words, here’s as good an attempt as we’ve seen in a long time. In this highly analytical piece David Prentice of the music blog “Rehearsing The Blues” breaks down the music that he heard performed by the Kurt Rosenwinkel Group at the Regatta Bar (in Cambridge, MA) on March 11+12, 2011, and then compares it also to a performance at the Village Vanguard back in January – as well as to multiple pieces by other musicians.

One of the most important facts about catching bands multiple nights in a row, is the fact that any good band will allow the moment to influence how they sound, and will sound different  – even playing the same songs – from night to night. David’s review also manages to catch some of that.

So if you weren’t able to go hear the band perform on those nights, here’s an idea of what they sounded like and the repertoire they played.
