Joshua Redman Quartet's "High Art" Draws "Warm Ovations" (Chicago Tribune)

on November 26, 2013

Joshua Redman and his Quartet closed out their US fall tour in Pittsburgh. The Chicago Tribune's Howard Reich, reviewing Friday's penultimate show at Symphony Center, says Redman makes music that is both "high art" and a joy for the crowd. "Can contemporary jazz improvisation be both challenging and accessible? Smart and attractive? Ultra-sophisticated and thoroughly comprehensible?" asks Reich. "The answers were decidedly affirmative on Friday night in Orchestra Hall at Symphony Center, where tenor saxophonist Joshua Redman played a deeply satisfying set that never pandered to popular tastes yet drew warm ovations nonetheless."
