    James Farm at Salle Pleyel, "Musicians at the Top of Their Game" (All About Jazz)

    James Farm—featuring Joshua Redman, pianist Aaron Parks, bassist Matt Penman and drummer Eric Harland—performed at Salle Pleyel in Paris on January 16, launching an international tour.

     

    "The group dynamic really shone on the groove pieces," writes All About Jazz reviewer David Miller. "James Farm the collective was on full display, especially on the set-closing 'Polliwog.' Each group member was permitted to play to his strengths—Harland and Penman laying down the foundation, Parks coloring the composition and Redman just straight blowing. These compositions had a little extra to them, a modernity that had the house rocking just that little bit more. The line blurred between the head and solo, as it seemed the creative process was ongoing, and the proverbial zone was reached."

     

    Miller goes on to say: This much is clear: these are absolute professional musicians at the top of their game."
