on January 13, 2011

Berkeley native Joshua Redman is in the Bay Area this week to perform two shows: a solo set at the Montalvo Arts Center in Saratoga and a quartet show at Zellerbach Hall in his hometown of Berkeley on Saturday, January 22. In advance of the rare solo show, Redman spoke with the San Jose Mercury News' Andrew Gilbert about what goes in to going it alone on stage.

 

"This is only my fourth solo performance ever, and it's going to be challenge," Redman tells Gilbert. "I don't know this space, and the acoustics of the room play a big part in my musical choices.

on November 01, 2010

The Joshua Redman Trio—featuring Gregory Hutchinson on drums and Matt Penman on bass—played two shows in Mumbai, India, in September, at the NCPA and the Blue Frog.

 

"Joshua Redman's two shows in Mumbai were the finest in Mumbai in a long time," raves Rolling Stone India's Sunil Sampat. "Beyond category. This is an expression borrowed from Duke Ellington when he was describing a recording by Ella Fitzgerald that must have pleased him immensely."

 

The two Mumbai shows, Sampat writes, "were indeed, 'beyond category.' It was arguably some of the finest jazz heard in Mumbai in a long time.

on October 25, 2010

The Joshua Redman Trio—featuring Reuben Rogers on bass and Gregory Hutchinson on drums—performed what Arts ATL's Jon Ross calls "an utterly captivating trio concert" at Spivey Hall in Atlanta on Saturday.

 

"This current lineup is a modern band in all senses of the word, performing free-flowing music that is based in swing and bebop but is built on an enhanced harmonic lexicon. During the show, neither Redman nor his bandmates were confined to a single style," says Ross.

Redman Trio Launches Four-Night Run at Blues Alley in DC

on October 15, 2010

The Joshua Redman Trio— featuring Gregory Hutchinson on drums and Reuben Rodgers on bass—kicked off a four-night residency at the Blues Alley in Washington, DC, Thursday night.

 

"If it's pedigree you want, Joshua Redman has it," writes the Washington Post's Aaron Leitko in a review of the opening-night set. "The San Francisco-based saxophonist player is the son of another horn player, Dewey Redman, a bona-fide jazz great who performed alongside Keith Jarrett and Ornette Coleman. But as a performer and composer, Redman's parentage lies elsewhere. He's really a child of Sonny Rollins."
