Presented by Carnegie Hall in partnership with Absolutely Live Entertainment LLC.
In honor of the centenary of his birth, Carnegie Hall’s 2019–2020 season is dedicated to the memory of Isaac Stern in recognition of his extraordinary contributions to Carnegie Hall, arts advocacy, and the field of music.
Kurt Rosenwinkel has been a distinct and prominent creative voice at the forefront of modern music for nearly three decades. The American multi-instrumentalist, composer, and producer has gained international recognition for his deft artistry and unabated individualism since he first appeared on the New York music scene in 1991. His legacy as the pre-eminent jazz guitarist of his generation is plainly evident on his 11 albums as a leader, each one the inspiration for legions of musicians young and old around the globe. Rosenwinkel’s aesthetic vision and multi-genre facility has caught the ear of some of modern music’s most prominent stars; collaborations with Eric Clapton, Q-Tip, Gary Burton, Paul Motian, Joe Henderson, Brad Mehldau, and Donald Fagen are but a few highlights from a remarkably diverse and extensive catalog of more than 150 sideman recordings.
In the winter of 2016, Rosenwinkel formed the independent music label Heartcore Records with the focused intention of signing and promoting a new generation of musicians whose exacting standards match his own. Heartcore has also allowed him to flourish in yet another dimension of music making: that of the record producer. He self-produced his 11th album, 2017’s Caipi, and was more recently involved as a producer and guitarist on Brazilian multi-instrumentalist Pedro Martins’s 2019 release, Vox.
The future looks intensely bright for Rosenwinkel, who is consistently busy as a sideman and leader of several projects. With plans to tour and release new material from his improvising trio Bandit 65, Brazilian rock/fusion band Caipi, and a forthcoming live solo album, this visionary artist doesn’t appear to be slowing down any time soon.
