UPDATE: Will Friedwald wrote a wonderful review in the Wall Street Journal of Kurt & OJM – you can find it by clicking here.
Kurt Rosenwinkel is back in New York City next week with OJM (Orquestra Jazz de Matosinhos) to perform at Birdland Jazz Club from August 9-13. This will be a chance for fans to hear Kurt perform in front of the same big band with whom he recorded his latest album entitled “Our Secret World“, released Sept. 7, 2010.
For those of you who saw Kurt & OJM when they performed in the US last year, there will be some new arrangements of other Kurt compositions, as well as new arrangements of a couple of jazz standards. And for those of you that have not heard the album or of the project before, here’s a link to an video that introduces the sound of Kurt & OJM. We hope to see you next week @ Birdland Jazz Club!
