Kurt Rosenwinkel's Caipi Band
“Kurt Rosenwinkel is a genius — he really is, and Caipi is music to heal the soul.” — Eric Clapton
"...a wash of electronic sound, an underlay of Brazilian rhythm and a fusion of instrumental and vocal sonorities." - Chicago Tribune
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 with the partnership of Razdaz Recordz. Ten years in the making, Caipi is easily his most personal expression to date and includes Kurt Rosenwinkel playing almost all the instruments (drums, bass, piano, synthesizers, percussion).
Kurt Rosenwinkel has put together an amazing group of musicians to perform on CAIPI. The album features Pedro Martins on guitar, Olivia Trummer on piano, Frederico Heliodoro on bass, Antonio Loureiro as a multi-instrumentalist, and Bill Campbell on drums. Special guest Eric Clapton offers a subtle touch of signature string-bending on the upbeat pop number "Little Dream."
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 Rosenwinkel'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.
