Notes and tones: Pianist Renee Rosnes guides ace band through all 'Kinds of Love'

As I've noted, the CD piles immediately to my left tend to accumulate — to the point where I feel like I’m playing a version of Jenga or attempting to build a house of cards. Pull the incorrect title from the stack and you’ve got a Jericho on your hands. The wall comes a-tumblin’ down.

Renee Rosnes - Kinds of Love (Smoke Sessions)

A celebrated pianist with a three-decade resumé that includes stints with legends Billy Drummond, Nils-Henning Ørsted Pedersen, Ron Carter, Wayne Shorter, Joe Henderson and J.J. Johnson, Renee Rosnes found a new level of notoriety as part of supergroup Artemis, who released a much-acclaimed debut LP last year on Blue Note. But the Saskatchewan native is at her best when she and her keyboard are up front, leading a band of excellent musicians in showcasing her own compositions. Her nineteenth record, Kinds of Love puts Rosnes at the head of an ensemble that includes current saxophone colossus Chris Potter, supreme bassist/educator Christian McBride, and a double rhythm team of Carl Allen on drums and Rogério Boccato on percussion.

Renee Rosnes: Kinds of Love

Still riding high on the energy generated by her superwoman jazz group Artemis—Anat Cohen, Melissa Aldana, Ingrid Jensen, Noriko Ueda and Allison Miller— pianist Renee Rosnes, undaunted by the string of world crises but just as ruminative as the rest of us, elicits some of the most emotive and enthralling music of her career on Kinds of Love.

Interview: Renee Rosnes

I've always loved Renee Rosnes's piano—on albums and in concert. She appears on stage, politely recognizes the audience and then disappears into a stormy world of musical energy, highly textured originality and passion. So I was gratified to have the opportunity recently to interview Renee and write about her new album for The Wall Street Journal's Arts in Review section.
