Product Description

Amazon.com

Having made a compelling departure into trippy fusion on his last CD, Heartcore, which he produced with hip-hop's Q-Tip, guitarist Kurt Rosenwinkel returns here to a more familiar post-bop sound, but with no loss of nerve or verve. Joined by a pair of frequent cohorts, tenor saxophonist Joshua Redman and pianist Brad Mehldau, he effortlessly moves in and out of the mainstream pocket, thriving on bright unison lines and sighing lyrical constructions. Rosenwinkel is a cerebral player, but with his naturally warm, tangy tone, he readily converts ideas to emotion, adding celestial seasoning to songs including the standard, "If I Should Lose You" with his subtle wordless vocals. It would be nice to hear Redman step out a bit more, but the restraint of the overall performance has its own rewards, setting off Rosenwinkel's own breakaway solos very nicely indeed. --Lloyd Sachs

Before I begin my review of "Deep Song" I must give everyone reading a little history of Kurt Rosenwinkel.

Kurt attended Berklee School of Music and dropped out after two and half years to join Gary Burton's band in 1990. He actually didn't start playing with Gary on albums until about 1992. Gary Burton took this guy under his wing and showed him the "musical ropes." Kurt played with several jazz musicians such as Joe Henderson, Brian Blade's Fellowship, and Paul Motian's Electric Bebop Band. His first album as a solo artist was "East Coast Love Affair" and then he released "Inuit," which was a collection of jazz standards in 1998. Finally in 2000, he was signed to Verve and released the album "The Enemies of Energy." In 2001 he released "The Next Step," an album which won him praise amongst such great jazz guitar greats as Pat Metheny and John Scofield. The year 2003 saw the release of "Heartcore," which was sort of a experimental/fusion type of jazz album. It was co-produced by hip-hop giant Q-Tip. This album was a big departure from the kind of jazz he played in the previous albums.

Now on to my review of 2005's "Deep Song." This album absolutely cooks! The musicians for this album are incredible as well. This album is a continuation in the jazz style that he displayed on "The Next Step." If you haven't bought "The Next Step" you must do so.....really great album, but I'm really listening to this album alot right now.

Whatever one thinks of Rosenwinkel's prior disc, Heartcore (and, admittedly, it received mixed reviews, at best--although some of us majorly dug it), I think it can safely be said it proved an important step in his musical development, kinda like the role Largo (another not altogether well-received effort) played in Brad Mehldau's career: each musician came out of his brief experiment with electronica wielding both a broader sonic palette and a greater depth of musical understanding.

Interestingly, here these two artists have joined forces, as it were, Mehldau (at least for this disc) becoming the piano counterpart to Rosenwinkel's guitar. That they mesh so well is hardly surprising. Perhaps the most obvious example is their work on "The Next Step," a reworking of the title tune of Rosenwinkel's last album before Heartcore. On the former outing, the leader played piano--competently enough, it must be said, but nothing that special. On this outing, which casually trumps the former, Mehldau forms and integral and essential part of the new conception, which is at once more intense, more swinging, and more ephemerally brilliant. Indeed, one can scarcely imagine the piece in its former incarnation after this masterful rereading. Very much like the transformation Ben Allison effected with his song "Buzz," originally from his Medicine Wheel disc, and then becoming the title (and, it must be said, signature) tune of his latest disc, Buzz.

Sometimes, I think, jazz needs to go through a kind of rebirth, often by encountering alien musics, such as, for instance, electronica, for it to achieve its proper apocalypses, showing forth, manifestation. Granted, these experiments, these encounters, are not always uniformly successful.

5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By John Jackson on December 14, 2005
Format: Audio CD
I bought this album mainly for my interest in the supporting cast (I'm a fan of Mehldau, Redman, Grenadier and Ballard.) I had never heard KR before and I am thoroughly impressed. Not only does he have amazing chops, but he also has a penchant for playing very quirky yet haunting melody lines, almost like Miles did on trumpet. The song selection is excellent. I think I only skip one or two of the songs, and that's more because I can't wait to get to other ones deeper in the album.

Some of this album is slow and poignant, some is swinging, some is afro-sassy. But it's NEVER boring. If you like good jazz, buy this album. I can't wait to get more of his stuff.

Highlights for me are: Th Cross, song #4, song #7 and the final track #10. But again, they're all quite nice.

PS Ali Jackson is one bad-mutha, as well.

Rosenwinkle's playing speaks for itself, and his reputation is well-earned. The strength of this album is its compositions. I like Mehldau here more than on anything else I've heard him on (including his own stuff).

Listen, I know it's *very* fashionable to rip on Redman. Given his relative popularity, backlash is inevitable. Doesn't change the fact that he's an incredible player. And to say that this album suffers because Redman is on it and Turner is not? Please. That's such an unfair thing to say, it's almost not worth commenting on, but I get sick of people dumping on Redman for no other reason than he's the golden child (deservedly, as long as Chris Potter gets props too!).
