Renee Rosnes Quartet

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 has recorded and toured with a veritable "who's who" of jazz, being the pianist of choice for such legendary musicians as Joe Henderson, Wayne Shorter, JJ Johnson, Buster Williams and Bobby Hutcherson. In 1989, James Moody hired Renee for his quartet, and she remained a member of his band until his passing in 2010. From 2004-2009, Rosnes was a member of the all-star octet, the SFJAZZ Collective. From 2008-2010, Rosnes enjoyed her role as the radio host of The Jazz Profiles, an interview series produced by Canada's CBC.

Rosnes has released a series of 14 albums, four of which have garnered Juno Awards, the Canadian equivalent of a Grammy. Her recordings reveal her to be both a powerful and sensitive musician with a huge range. She has collaborated with a diverse range of artists, from established masters such as Jack DeJohnette and tabla maestro Ustad Zakir Hussain, to younger giants such as Christian McBride, Chris Potter, Nicholas Payton and Steve Nelson. She is a formidable composer and in 2003 was named SOCAN's Composer of the Year. Her works have been performed and recorded by Phil Woods, JJ Johnson, Lewis Nash, Joe Locke, the Danish Radio Big Band, the Carnegie Hall Jazz Orchestra, and trombonist Michael Dease.

Rosnes is now a respected leader in her own right, but aside from leading her own bands, she is currently a member of bassist Ron Carter's Quartet and often performs with her husband, acclaimed pianist Bill Charlap. A review from 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. 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. Her exposure to a variety of artists has prodded her to develop a clear voice all her own."
