Star of Jupiter is Kurt Rosenwinkel's tenth album as a band leader. This album features an all new band, and is Rosenwinkel's first quartet album since 2001's The Next Step. The all-original set is composed mostly of new tunes, and includes re-make of an old composition, "A Shifting Design". This studio album is future-leaning, but firmly rooted in the jazz tradition. All About Jazz calls it "a contemporary classic".
