The most influential and strikingly original guitarist-composer of his generation makes a radical leap in his musical direction on Caipi, the debut release on his new label Heartcore Records. Ten years in the making, Caipi is easily his most personal expression to date and features Rosenwinkel playing all the instruments (drums, bass, piano, synthesizers, percussion) with the company of notable guests (Amanda Brecker, Mark Turner, Eric Clapton).
Elements of rock and jazz co-exist happily with all the easily recognizable features of his personal style; above all, there is ample space for the evolving world of Brazilian music in its most recent guise and, in particular, the Brazilian love song. To some extent this symbolizes Kurt’s natural leaning towards the creation of melodies of considerable emotional impact, a highly distinctive feature and an unavoidable element in his markedly romantic artistic vision.
The folder includes also Caipi digital booklet with the lyrics and the story of the album.
