“Every year, there are many jazz albums that, from their opening bars, demonstrate admirable creativity. Every year, there are a few jazz albums that, from their opening bars, engulf your listening room in flames. KINDS OF LOVE is the latter. Renee Rosnes assembled a world-class band and wrote nine new tunes, especially for them. The risk of bringing in heavy hitters like Chris Potter and Christian McBride is that they will eclipse the leader, but Rosnes is the star of her own show. Her compositions are striking, and her piano improvisations kill.”
— Thomas Conrad, Stereophile

“Just when you thought pandemic-related albums were becoming downers, Renee Rosnes offers the perfect elixir with KINDS OF LOVE…If anyone needs a joyous soundtrack for reflection and celebration as we hopefully exit from this horrific pandemic, this is it.”
— John Murph, Downbeat

“Rosnes is a pianist of quiet depth. Always elegant in style, her marriage of technique and immense soul often gives an ethereal quality to her music. She has got a harder edge in KINDS OF LOVE; a pandemic and the existential crises it brings can do that.”
— Marilyn Lester, The New York City Jazz Record


Renowned pianist and composer Renee Rosnes’s album, KINDS OF LOVE, honors and celebrates love through nine brilliant compositions performed with a stunning all-star band featuring some of her favorite collaborators, Chris Potter, Christian McBride, Carl Allen, and Rogério Boccato.

This staggering all-star quintet represents a deep web of friendships and collaborations stretching back decades for Rosnes, and she seized the opportunity to craft a full album’s worth of new compositions, conceived with these extraordinary artists, and their singular voices in mind. She emerged from the year of relative isolation, experienced by so many, with a reinvigorated appreciation for the many different shapes that love can take. This breathtaking new music 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.

“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.”
