Kurt Rosenwinkel is a modern jazz guitar alchemist who cut his teeth under the tutelage of legendary jazz elders such as Gary Burton, Paul Motian and Joe Henderson, and later became known as one of the leaders of Small's jazz scene in New York City alongside his longtime musical partner Mark Turner as well as peers like Brad Mehldau and Avishai Cohen. Equally at ease whether dishing out one of his emotive interpretations of jazz standards or jamming through one of his many innovative original compositions that cover the broad spectrum of his musical magnitude, Rosenwinkel has ascended into the upper echelons of contemporary music with a well-earned reputation as a singular voice in modern jazz. His delicate lyricism, technical mastery and kinetic melodies, which he frequently sings along to as he plays, have created an iconic and instantly recognisable musical voice that is admired by a generation of jazz musicians and collaborators
