Kurt Rosenwinkel New Quartet featuring Aaron Parks, Eric Revis & Justin Faulkner

Event Date: 
Wednesday, March 6, 2013 - 7:30pm

On his first quartet album since the ground-breaking 2001 release The Next Step, Kurt Rosenwinkel offers a variation of that ensemble make-up on Star of Jupiter, assembling a stellar band which includes pianist Aaron Parks, bassist Eric Revis, and the dynamic young drummer and fellow Philadelphia native, Justin Faulkner.

Star of Jupiter is a departure from what has previously helped define Rosenwinkel’s prowess, yet is strikingly inclusive of the broad spectrum of his musical magnitude. His brilliant use of space is paired with deeply affective melodies and sensual grooves that evolve slowly and steadily; a quality in the music he fully identifies with and whole-heartedly embraces.

Rosenwinkel has continuously taken gallant steps in his artistry, and now, with Star of Jupiter, articulates his vision on the deepest level yet. Irrefutably the most influential jazz guitarist of the new millennium, he is steering the ship on a journey which encompasses more than an adept mastery of his instrument. Star of Jupiter is an experience; an opportunity for listeners to hear in the music, their own dreams. Artist Official Website
