Kurt Rosenwinkel at Akbank Jazz Festival
Within the scope of the 23rd Akbank Jazz Festival guitarist Kurt Rosenwinkel will be at Babylon today at 9:30 p.m.
Rosenwinkel, who was discovered by Gary Burton while he was studying at Berklee School of Music has been performing his music for over 20 years. His soft and flowing melodies and his balanced use of distortion resembles the musical stylings of Pat Metheny and John Scofield.
Rosenwinkel, who previously worked with Aaaron Goldberg, Joe Martin, Eric Harland, Mark Turner and Brad Mehldau holds the The National Endowment for the Art Composer’s award.
Rosenwinkel will hit the stage with Aaron Parks, Eric Revis and Justin Faulkner, who was previously featured on the album Star of Jupiter.
