Kurt Rosenwinkel New Quartet (USA), Festival Theatre Budapest, 29 May
Perhaps the most significant and ground-breaking guitarist of the new millennium, Kurt Rosenwinkel is now bringing his Star of Jupiter to Hungary. This is the title of the double album of entirely original music released by his newly formed quartet in late 2012. It was greeted only with superlatives from every significant jazz publication, some of which even went as far as to dub it an instant classic.

 Now in his mid forties, Rosenwinkel last released a quartet album in 2001. More than a decade later, he has assembled a dream team of Aaron Parks, also Terence Blanchard's favourite pianist, bassist Eric Revis and Justin Faulkner on drums, a double-act that also makes up the rhythm section of Branford Marsalis's quartet.

Nonetheless, Star of Jupiter is in every sense a Rosenwinkel record, even if it is a departure from his earlier material. A sweeping succession of infectious melodies and sensitive grooves grows increasingly broad as Rosenwinkel's guitar play swells to fill the space. 'What my music is about in general - and this album is no different - has to do with the relationship that we each have with the universe at large and how we use our intuition to hear what it is telling us,' the leader of the ensemble explains.

The hat-wearing master of the strings will not be unfamiliar to the Palace of Arts audience: Rosenwinkel appeared in 2007 as a special guest of the Dániel Szabó Trio at the Monday Evening Jazz series and their collaboration is also recorded on a joint album.
