Renee Rosnes On Piano Jazz


Upon moving to New York from Vancouver, Canada, pianist and composer Renee Rosnes established a reputation as one of the premier jazz musicians on the scene. Over her 30-year career, Rosnes has collaborated with a diverse range of artists, from established masters such as Jack DeJohnette to younger giants such as Christian McBride and Melissa Aldana. On this 1990 episode of Piano Jazz, Rosnes plays Monk's "Four in One" then improvises with McPartland on her own tune "Fleur-de-lis."
