Renee Rosnes is one of the premier pianists and composers of her generation. Shortly after relocating from Vancouver, Canada to New York in 1986, Rosnes quickly established a reputation as a major talent. Rosnes toured and recorded was the pianist of choice for such legends as Joe Henderson, Wayne Shorter, JJ Johnson, James Moody, the SFJAZZ Collective [2004-2009], and Bobby Hutcherson among others, her resumé reading like a “who's who” of jazz. From 1990 through 2000, she was the pianist for the Carnegie Hall Jazz Band. As a leader, Rosnes has released twelve critically acclaimed recordings, which reveal her to be a powerful and sensitive musician, collaborating with a diverse range of artists, from Ron Carter and Jack DeJohnette, to younger giants such as Chris Potter, Christian McBride and Lewis Nash. Rosnes’ latest disc is Manhattan Rain (Pony Canyon) featuring vibraphonist Steve Nelson, tenor saxophonist Rich Perry, bassist Peter Washington and Bill Stewart on drums. As well as touring and performing with her own band, she frequently performs with her husband, renowned pianist Bill Charlap in a two piano setting. The couple’s debut recording, Double Portrait, was released in 2010 on the Blue Note label. In the role of jazz journalist, Renee has contributed two major cover story interviews for JazzTimes Magazine, one with master musician Wayne Shorter and his quartet (April 2013) and the other with pianist Geri Allen (September 2013). Rosnes is currently a member of legendary bassist Ron Carter’s Foursight Quartet.
