Renee Rosnes has emerged as one of the premier jazz 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 with such legends as Joe Henderson, Wayne Shorter, JJ Johnson, Bobby Hutcherson, the SFJAZZ Collective, and James Moody among others, her resumé reading like a who's who of jazz. As a leader, Rosnes has released twelve critically acclaimed recordings, which reveal a unique sound, 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 titled “Manhattan Rain” featuring Steve Nelson, Rich Perry, Peter Washington and Bill Stewart on drums. As well as touring and performing with her own band, she is currently a member of bassist Ron Carter’s “Foursight” band, and also performs with her husband, acclaimed pianist Bill Charlap in a two piano setting. The couple released their first duo recording in 2010: "Double Portrait" (Blue Note).
