A truly transcendental outing, Rosenwinkel doesn’t abandon the tradition which threads his playing and established his resonant foundation. Songs like the gloriously swinging “A Shifting Design” and “Mr. Hope” present a nexus of earthiness amidst etherealness, with Parks delivering a delightfully Monk-ish solo on the latter; an homage to the unsung bebop pianist Elmo Hope. “Homage a’ Mitch” is another bow to his deep bebop roots as embodied by Mitch Borden, who owned Smalls jazz club in New York City’s West Village throughout the '90s where Rosenwinkel’s bands played a major role in the now legendary scene.
Rosenwinkel has continuously taken gallant steps in his artistry, and now, with Star of Jupiter (WOMMUSIC/2012), articulates his vision on the deepest level yet. Irrefutably the most influential jazz guitarist of the new millennium, Rosenwinkel is steering the ship on a journey which encompasses more than an adept mastery of his instrument. Star of Jupiter is an experience; an opportunity for listeners to hear in the music, their own dreams.
