“One of the most widely applauded guitarists of the under-50 generation” (Chicago Tribune), Kurt Rosenwinkel presents a revised edition of his standards trio featuring Italian bass virtuoso Dario Deidda and drummer Gregory Hutchinson, performing material from his 2009 Word of Mouth album Reflections and new settings of timeless classics.

A restless explorer whose projects have ranged from solo guitar to orchestral settings, Rosenwinkel has staked out a singular position in jazz’s firmament as a player, composer and bandleader with a vast and supremely sophisticated harmonic vision and melodic sensibility. Barely 20 years old when he dropped out of Berklee College of Music to tour with vibraphonist Gary Burton’s band, he confidently took over a chair known as a launching pad for some of jazz’s most influential guitarists, including Larry Coryell, Mick Goodrick and Pat Metheny. He gained further recognition performing and recording with drum legend Paul Motian’s volatile Electric Bebop Band and drummer/composer Brian Blade’s Fellowship Band, to which he returned for his last SFJAZZ appearance during the 2017-2018 Season, and released a steady stream of wildly diverse recordings under his own name while collaborating with the likes of Joshua Redman, Mark Turner, and Brad Mehldau. With his standards trio, Rosenwinkel goes beyond proving the adage of “what’s old is what’s new again” — he rebuilds timeworn melodies into statements as personal as they are unexpected.

Rosenwinkel returns to the Joe Henderson Lab — an apt venue for an artist who spent formative time in the band led by the late saxophone giant in the 1990s.

A jazz guitarist of glowing lyricism and graceful exposition, with a technique that can form streamlined contours out of even the gnarliest convolutions.

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.
