Renee Rosnes, one of the essential pianists and composers working today, celebrates the recent release of her new album Beloved of the Sky. In a review of it for Stereogum Phil Freeman writes, “Her style at the keyboard is powerful and modernistic, combining classical technique and sharp, clean phrases with a dramatic compositional style. The music is reminiscent of mid ’60s Blue Note albums by players like Joe Henderson, Andrew Hill, Bobby Hutcherson (with whom Rosnes worked), Sam Rivers, Wayne Shorter and Tony Williams; it swings, and never loses touch with the blues, but it’s also abstract and biting. Chris Pearson of The Times (UK) in his five-star review says, “Few jazz pianists are as scarily satisfying.” Joining her are long-time collaborators Steve Nelson, Peter Washington, and Carl Allen.
