Kurt Rosenwinkel: Village Vanguard Bonus Content

Kurt Rosenwinkel Backstage at the Village Vanguard
WBGO is presenting Kurt Rosenwinkel live at the Village Vanguard tonight.  If you listen to the NPR Music Player before the show, you would discover this interview and solo performance I did with Kurt last year.  You can also hear some of the content separately.  Here's a random access sample of Kurt Rosenwinkel's digital music.  Kurt also talked On the Record about some important sessions that he did NOT lead.
After the show is over, we'll be offering Kurt's Live at the Village Vanguard performance as a podcast.  A pretty revolutionary and completely experimental concept for jazz, right?  Our idea caught the attention of Toronto blogger Peter Hum, who wrote about tonight's show in Thriving on a Riff.

Kurt Rosenwinkel - Untitled Improvisation

I talked to guitarist Kurt Rosenwinkel yesterday, and he played some songs. Here's one of them:

 

Kurt recently released The Remedy, a two-disc collection of music recorded live at the Village Vanguard in 2006. Highly recommended listening.
Kurt is one of the most gifted voices in jazz. But don't believe me.
