First Listen: Renee Rosnes - Written in the Rocks

First Listen is sponsored by Bay Bloor Radio - The Right Sound For the Right Price.

Renee Rosnes has just released her newest recording called Written in The Rocks, an ambitious and expansive recording featuring Steve Nelson on vibes, Steve Wilson reeds Peter Washington bass and Bill Stewart drums.

The album is a meeting point of the things that inspire Renee: science, ideas, nature and matters of the heart. Renee’s upbringing on the west coast of Canada can be found in the recording. As she says “the infinite blue-green hues of the Pacific Northwest are in my blood.”

At the heart of the release is a seven part piece called “The Galapagos Suite." The third part of the suite, "So Simple a Beginning" from four-time Juno winner Renee Rosnes, is your First Listen for January 29th.
