Orquestra Jazz de Matosinhos & Kurt Rosenwinkel

The collaboration of Kurt Rosenwinkel with the Orquestra Jazz de Matosinhos (OJM) began in 2008 and gave rise to the edition of a joint album, “Our Secret World” (2010), and a series of concerts in Portugal, Spain and the USA. The guitarist reunited with OJM for another concert in 2015, which included new arrangements of Carlos Azevedo, Pedro Guedes and Ohad Talmor.


Kurt Rosenwinkel is one of the most solid references of modern jazz. The style of this guitarist from Philadelphia is - and always was - easily identifiable, and his voice, of a unique timbre, is part of his discrete identity. Since the first recordings that his sound is characterized by an absence of prejudice against musical genres and its composition expresses a profound innovation and openness to the possibilities of contemporary music. Throughout his career of more than 25 years and with ten albums as a leader, Rosenwinkel has collaborated with musicians, such as Brad Mehldau, Brian Blade, Joshua Redman, Chris Potter, and jazz veterans, such as Joe Henderson, Paul Motian and Gary Burton.


In April 2015, in one of the most recent Rosenwinkel concerts with OJM, several arrangements of Carlos Azevedo, Pedro Guedes and Ohad Talmor were recovered for the album “Our Secret World” (the first of Rosenwinkel with a big band) and a series of original compositions present in multiple albums of the guitarist were also included, such as “Heartcore” (2003) and “The Next Step” (2001), where a sound similar to the live performance of his first quartet that included Mark Turner, Ben Street and Jeff Ballard was heard for the first time. In this album, Rosenwinkel proved again his originality in songs such as “Use of Light” and “Zhivago” that, inspired by the film “Doctor Zhivago”, also exemplifies his inspiration in universes beyond the sound.


Over the years, the collaboration between OJM and Rosenwinkel has been enriched with new arrangements of the guitarist songs that show new perspectives on compositions initially designed for small musical formations. Examples of this are the themes “I Need to Know”, with arrangements by Carlos Azevedo, “Déjà vu”, with Pedro Guedes arrangements, and three new arrangements also premiered in 2015: “Flute”, arranged by Ohad Talmor, “Song of our Sea”, arranged by Pedro Guedes and “Cycle Five”, arranged by Carlos Azevedo.
