Pianist Renee Rosnes to perform with her quartet at Jazz Center

BRATTLEBORO — Pianist Renee Rosnes will perform at the Vermont Jazz Center on Saturday, April 16, at 8 p.m., with her quartet including vibraphonist Steve Nelson, bassist Peter Washington, and drummer Lewis Nash.

Cited as “one of the finest pianists in jazz,” Rosnes has recorded and toured with Joe Henderson, Wayne Shorter, J.J. Johnson, James Moody, Buster Williams, Bobby Hutcherson and others.

In a review of her most recent recording, Written in the Rocks, Downbeat magazine says “Rosnes is a virtuoso jazz composer ... advanced yet accessible, complex but never ostentatious, this is as good as writing can get in this setting."

Aside from leading her own bands and projects, Rosnes is a member of bassist Ron Carter's quartet and often performs with her husband, the pianist Bill Charlap.

A review from The Boston Globe says, “Rosnes has carved out for herself a reputation as one of jazz's new bright lights. She has impressed veterans of the bebop and free-jazz wars with a crisp, uncluttered approach to improvisation that respects, but doesn't genuflect to, the music of the past.”

The quartet Rosnes will bring to the Jazz Center is her working band, with whom she has recorded numerous albums.
