Kurt Rosenwinkel continually presents music that conveys a sense of masterful storytelling and breathtaking imaginative reach. His significance as a composer to the ever-evolving jazz landscape in fact transcends the oft-cited lineage of jazz guitar in much the same way that Thelonious Monk and Wayne Shorter both impacted colleagues much beyond the scope of their respective instruments. The Kurt Rosenwinkel will make his Portland debut supported by a stellar cast: Seattle native Aaron Parks, bassist Eric Revis and drummer Justin Faulkner who previously appeared on the festival with Pharoah Sanders and the Mingus Big Band.
"Rosenwinkel's playing and composing over the past two decades...has formed an influential ideal for young musicians of his and following generations." - NPR "All Things Considered"
