After listening to Kurt Rosenwinkel’s "Star of Jupiter" I believe PM finally has some serious competition in the realm of serious "guitarist/composer." The record is absolutely brilliant in terms of compositional sophistication, originality and serious "chops." There’s nothing like it out there (kinda like the "real" star of Jupiter!).

Bookmark and Share I have been drawn to Kurt’s material for several years. I do believe he coming into his own and his sound/style has become signature for him. SOJ is compelling and rewards those who listen to it multiple times.

Bookmark and Share Thanks for the review, as always with John, very well written. Your reviews are very helpfull when one only has digital downloads of the music.I like the mention of the supporting players (pianist Aaron Parks and bassist Eric Revis) as I have the James Farm recording and also Branford Marselis’ A Love Supreme. I have The Enemies of Energy so I can relate there also.

Bookmark and Share I’m sure dgaw59 meant no contest but that Pat’s not the only magnificent one out there. Kurt is in his league certainly.

Bookmark and Share I look forward to hearing this. I’ve always liked Kurt’s stuff. I also want to see Orchestrion, but I’m not sure which version to seek out.

Bookmark and Share I concur. Kurt has definitely raised the level of his playing over the years and is a serious contender.And he’s a Philly guy, which is good to hear for all of us localites!
