Always on the move

In his music, Kurt is always going in new directions and exploring new sonic territory. His recent work (although this has been released for some time now) has lead the path quiet far from the world of jazz standards with a trio lineup and jaw dropping guitarsolos. With this new direction, comes also an emphasis on vocals and what some call less "geeky guitar playing".
What do you think of this new direction?

Concert and masterclass at Barcelona Jazz Festival 2015

Manolo Pereira has been so kind as to share his personal recording of the solo concert of Kurts masterclass in Liceu last month at the Barcelona Jazz Festival 2015.
The masterclass is a bit different, because it's Kurt with the band, and not the usual solo clinic style.
I havn't had a chance to listen to the whole thing yet, but I'm looking forward it.

Thanks to Manolo for sharing!

Kurt Rosenwinkel Clinic @ Old Town School of Folk Music

Today I came across this video from a clinic at 'Old Town School Of Folk Music' recorded on the 19. april 2014. I haven't yet transcribed anything from the video, but I can't wait to check out Kurt's voiceleading in Blue Monk - awsome stuff!


The video was uploaded by 'Old Town School Of Folk Music' so a huge thanks for sharing to those guys!

"Kurt I" transcription

Ben Eldridge didn't get a lot of feedback when he offered his transcription of "Kurt I" on the Kurt Rosenwinkel forum. Ben did a really nice job with this one, so I got permission to share it here on the site. "Kurt I" is the second track on disc two from the album "Star of Juipter".
