Preview: Kurt Rosenwinkel @ Sage Gateshead (Saturday 28)

(Preview by Russell)

Since the early 90s Kurt Rosenwinkel has released a steady stream of albums as leader or in collaboration with others and clocked up 150-plus sessions as a sideman. Now in his late forties, the Pennsylvania-born guitarist is an influential figure on the contemporary jazz scene and a first appearance in the region this weekend is likely to result in guitarists from all points heading to Sage Gateshead's Northern Rock Foundation Hall. 

From Berklee student to a member of Gary Burton's touring band, Rosenwinkel never looked back. Associations with Paul Motian, Joe Henderson, Mark Turner, Seamus Blake, Larry Goldings, Chris Potter and Joshua Redman, to name but a few, suggest he works with the best and they with him. Other than Pat Metheny it is hard to think of another guitarist who could generate such interest.
   
Bandit 65 is Rosenwinkel's current trio project featuring Tim Motzer (guitar, guitar syth, electronics) and Gintas Janusonis (drums, percussion). Saturday, September 28 is the date (7:15 doors, 7:45 start, no support act, unreserved seating, first come, first served), ink it in the diary then, to be sure of your ticket, call Sage Gateshead - 0191 443 4661.
