Kurt Rosenwinkel

guitar | United States
Live Artist

Berlin based guitarist Kurt Rosenwinkel (originally from Philadelphia) is one of the most influential role models for the current generation of jazz guitarists worldwide - due to his virtuoso playing and because he successfully enriches the modern jazz guitar vocabulary with influences from rock and hip-hop. His work reaches far beyond jazz. Guitar hero Eric Clapton is a fan of Rosenwinkel's lyrical playing and gave him one of his legendary guitars. With the hip-hop Band "The Roots", Kurt Rosenwinkel appeared on the Jimmy Fallon Show and was involved in the release "Vox" by the Brazilian multi-instrumentalist Pedro Martins as producer and guitarist in 2019. Countless other collaborations with artists such as Q-tip, Gary Burton, Paul Motian, Joe Henderson, Brad Mehldau or Donald Fagen show Rosenwinkel's enormous range.

In 2016 Kurt Rosenwinkel founded the independent music label Heartcore Records in Berlin, on which his eleventh self-produced album "Caipi", heavily influenced by popular Brazilian music, was released in 2017.

With his "Standards Trio" together with the Italian bass virtuoso Dario Deidda and Brooklyn's talented drummer Mark Whitfield Jr., Kurt Rosenwinkel is now returning to his roots in jazz - and to the format that once established his exceptional position. The Chicago Tribune states: “One of the most widely applauded guitarists of the under 50 generation, Kurt Rosenwinkel rebuilds timeworn melodies into statements as personal as they are unexpected, not with nostalgia for the past, but a blues-inspired hopefulness for the future.” And Jazz Times sums up: „Rosenwinkel has come to be just as identifiable as Pat Metheny, Bill Frisell or any of the modern-school guitarists with whom he's usually compared.”
