Kurt Rosenwinkel
"East Coast Love Affair"
Playing on Thursday at Village Vanguard
(178 7th Ave., West Village) 
Get: Tickets ($25) | Directions 

Jazz guitarist Kurt Rosenwinkel has only been recording since in the mid-‘90s yet in that relatively short amount of time, he’s come to be regarded as one of the standout guitarists of his generation. From his solo work to his current big band project, Rosenwinkel takes on every musical setup with the same graceful and virtuosic ease.

This week, Rosenwinkel returns to the Vanguard project. Download his ruminative song “East Coast Love Affair” -- the lone original composition on his 2009 standards album Reflections. And in the video below, watch The Kurt Rosenwinkel Quartet perform "Hommage a Mitch."

The Kurt Rosenwinkel New Quartet -- featuring bassist Eric Revis, pianist Aaron Parks, and drummer Justin Faulkner -- continues its week-long residency at the Village Vanguard through Sunday night.
