Past Event

Renee Rosnes

On her 16th and 17th albums as a leader, Written on The Rocks and Beloved Of The Sky [Smoke Sessions] Renee Rosnes has further burnished her stature as one of the most distinguished pianists and composers of her generation. A native of Vancouver who moved to New York in 1986, Rosnes learned indelible lessons in musical storytelling on consequential gigs with such American masters as Joe Henderson, Wayne Shorter, JJ Johnson, Bobby Hutcherson, and James Moody. Now a widely recognized master herself, Rosnes will, on this evening, reveal to the Desert Island Disks audience the stories associated with the signpost tracks of her personal history as a listener.
