    Joshua Redman's new album, Trios Live, earns four stars from BBC Music Magazine, which lauds Redman's "athletic, exuberant and all-consuming extemporization" on the album, calling it "a thrill-a-minute set," and All About Jazz, which says "Redman's definitely got the fire and burns hot as coals in Trios Live which captures the essence of his unbridled abilities as musician and performer ... Redman is in his element."

    Joshua Redman's new album, Trios Live, is a "sax fan's dream of a live set," says the Guardian in a four-star review.

"The spirit in these live performances," says the Buffalo News, "is steadfast and superb." Get Trios Live from iTunes or the Nonesuch Store, where
