Over the course of a 20–year career, guitarist Kurt Rosenwinkel’s influence on the ever–evolving jazz tradition may be compared to the way in which Thelonious Monk and Wayne Shorter both impacted colleagues much beyond the scope of their respective instruments. His is a singular compositional voice: full of mystery and power, marked by an effortless marriage of high complexity and undeniable emotional appeal. Reporting for the Los Angeles Times on a February performance by the Standards Trio at LA’s Musicians Institute, Chris Barton wrote: “Rosenwinkel let his guitar speak with a near crystalline clarity…a sleek mix of chords and finger-blurring runs that dovetailed nicely with the show’s location.” For this special Jazz Standard engagement, Kurt will join forces with another exceptional guitarist, Peter Bernstein, on June 13; rising star saxophonist Aaron Burnett will step to the stand on June 14; and alto sax master Greg Osby will appear on June 15. Kurt rounds out the week with two artists from the Motor City: vocalist/pianist Johnny O’Neal will share the spotlight on June 16 (vocals only), and the great Geri Allen will occupy the piano position on 6/17.
