Kurt hits the road again!
Following some great dates – first a Solo performance at the Akbank Jazz Festival in Istanbul, Turkey – and then 2 performances in Germany with the HR Big Band, performing all-new arrangements of a number of Kurt’s compositions (different songs than those that appear on Kurt’s big band album “Our Secret World“), Kurt Rosenwinkel is about to hit the road again for some Solo and New Quartet dates + special guesting with some old friends.
On October 22 & 23 he will be in Quebec, Canada giving a master class and playing a Solo concert at the Jazz Quebec Festival. The Solo concert is a double bill with The Bad Plus, a band whose members Kurt has had a long friendship with, and whom he appeared with at the JVC Festival a few yeas back at Carnegie Hall. And they are scheduled to appear together again, although not at Jazz Quebec. In November Kurt will travel to Japan with The Bad Plus for 4 shows in Tokyo. 2 of them will be at the Cotton Club and 2 at Blue Note Tokyo.
Prior to that Kurt will perform a number of Solo & New Quartet shows of his own:
Oct. 23: Jazz Quebec, Canada
Oct. 25: Jazzuv Festival in Xalapa, Mexico
Oct. 27: Teatro Degollado in Guadalajara, Mexico
Oct. 31: German House in NYC, USA
After these performances Kurt heads straight to Europe to perform a number of New Quartet dates:
New Quartet Tour:
Nov. 2: Porgy & Bess, Vienna, Austria
Nov. 3: Lantaren-Venster, Rotterdam, Netherlands
Nov. 4: Moods, Zurich, Switzerland
Nov. 6: Barcelona Jazz Festival, Barcelona, Spain
Nov. 8: University de Las Palmas, Gran Canaria, Spain
Speaking of New Quartet: Did you get your Star of Jupiter T-shirt yet? The t-shirt is white, reflecting the album artwork, and is made by Alternate Apparel = better quality than your average merch t-shirt, smoother & feels nicer on the skin.
Initially we offer the shirt in medium and large for women (slim fit), and small, medium, large & XL for men (Regular fit). Simply pick a size (small, medium, large and XL) and a style (female or male) and then a quantity, add to cart and then pretty soon you’ll be able to show your passion for this music in public.
The Star of Jupiter album itself, if you don’t own it yet, is available here.
Kurt Rosenwinkel will return to the US again in January to perform at the Jazz Standard with his New Quartet on January 8-12, 2014 (during APAP) as well as at the Kimmel Center in Philadelphia on January 16.
