Cited as “one of the finest pianists in jazz,” pianist Rosnes brings her quartet with vibraphonist Steve Nelson, bassist Peter Washington and drummer Lewis Nash to the VJC.
Originally from Vancouver, Renee Rosnes recorded and toured with a veritable “who’s who” of jazz, as pianist of choice for Joe Henderson, Wayne Shorter, JJ Johnson, James Moody, Ron Carter, The SF Jazz Collective and more.
From 2008-2010, Rosnes enjoyed her role as host of The Jazz Profiles, an interview series by Canada’s CBC.
Rosnes has released 14 albums, four of which garnered Juno Awards, the Canadian equivalent of a Grammy. She is a formidable composer and in 2003 named SOCAN’s Composer of the Year.
The Boston Globe sums up her place in the spectrum quite clearly: “Rosnes has carved out for herself a reputation as one of jazz’s new bright lights… Her exposure to a variety of artists has prodded her to develop a clear voice all her own.”
