     Renee Rosnes

Born: Mar 24, 1962 in Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada
Genres: Jazz
Styles: Hard Bop, Post-Bop

Renee Rosnes plays in an advanced and flexible hard bop style. A native of Canada, she began piano lessons at age three and violin when she was five. She worked throughout Canada, performing on CBC Jazz Radio Canada shows, gigging with her trio regularly at a hotel, and playing on the S.S. Rotterdam Cruise Liner. Rosnes moved to New York in 1985, and has played and/or recorded with a wide variety of artists, including Joe Henderson, Wayne Shorter, J.J. Johnson, Jon Faddis, James Moody, the group Out of the Blue, Gary Thomas, and Robin Eubanks. In addition, Renee Rosnes has recorded many excellent sessions for Blue Note as a leader.

Canadian pianist Renee Rosnes is enjoying a dynamic career that has garnered great distinction and respect from her peers and critics alike. She has established herself as an engaging leader and composer, having paid her dues with a stellar cast of greats, as well as with her own acclaimed groups. Her eighth Blue Note release, Life on Earth, is not only powerful musical testimony to these facts, but she also perpetually reveals herself to be one of the most imaginative and soulful pianists of modern jazz.

On Life on Earth, she expands her repertoire, creating an advernturous album that blends jazz and world music to stunning effect. The CD's nine cuts feature a wide range of flavors - Indian, Senegalese, American Indian and Brazilian among them - held together by Rosnes' own unique musical vision. The Los Angeles Times states the recording is "a musical mosaic shimmering with dazzling combinations of sound and rhythm on virtually every track. It is an important album, not just for Rosnes, but for jazz as a whole." This tour de force features a host of musicians including Zakir Hussain, Mor Thiam, Billy Drummond, Jeff "Tain" Watts, Duduka Da Fonseca, Chris Potter, Walt Weiskopf, Steve Turre and John Patitucci among others.

Attracting international attention more than a decade ago, Renee came to New York from Vancouver in 1986 thanks to a grant from the Canada Council of the Arts. Her profile immediately ascended to a high level as she performed before international audiences with some of the greatest musicians of the twentieth century. They include such masters as the recently departed Joe Henderson and J.J. Johnson, and tenor saxophone legends Wayne Shorter and James Moody. She toured the world with them, building on an already solid musical foundation she established in her native Canada. Renee's career continues to broaden. Add to her list three Juno Awards alongside notable associations with Bobby Hutcherson, Niels Henning Orsted Pedersen, The Carnegie Hall Jazz Band, The Lincoln Center Jazz Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis, and the esteemed Danish Radio Jazz Orchestra. CBC filmed an hour long in depth documentary: "Renee Rosnes: As We Are Now" on the pianist's life and career which was televised in 2000. In the U.S., Bruce Ricker's Rhapsody Films offers the public a video, entitled "Renee Rosnes: Jazz Pianist", featuring an intimate Rosnes trio performance as well as a candid interview. She is no longer regarded as merely an impressive player but a formidable contributor to the modern jazz repertoire.
