About The Album
Pianist and composer Renee Rosnes celebrates and honors all kinds of love found in the world with a brilliant album of brand new music featuring a stunning all-star band with Rosnes, Chris Potter, Christian McBride, Carl Allen and Rogério Boccato.
The strange pandemic year 0f 2020 was a time of reflection and contemplation for many. Pianist and composer Renee Rosnes emerged for it with a reinvigorated appreciation for the many different shapes that love can take. Her breathtaking recording, Kinds of Love, is both a celebration of and a meditation on the myriad forms it’s taken in her own life – romantic love, love of family, of nature, of the arts and of close relationships she’s forged with many of her fellow musicians.
The staggering all-star quintet that Rosnes assembled for the occasion – saxophonist Chris Potter, bassist Christian McBride, drummer Carl Allen, and percussionist Rogério Boccato – represent a deep web of friendships and collaborations stretching back decades in some cases. She seized the opportunity to craft a full album’s worth of new compositions, conceived with these particular voices, and their singular combination, in mind. And for many of them, this recording date marked one of their first times back in a studio after the long dry spell of 2020.
“I’ve tried to look at the pandemic as a gift of time, and the knowledge that I would soon be recording with my friends inspired much of the music,” Rosnes says. “It was thrilling to experience the humanity of making music again in the moment. Each of these musicians are profound, humble virtuosos and, on a human level, enlightened spirits.”
