    Joshua Redman Nominated for Grammy Award

    Joshua Redman has been nominated for a Grammy Award for Best Improvised Jazz Solo for his tune "Friend or Foe" from the self-titled debut album from The Bad Plus Joshua Redman. The album was released on Nonesuch Records in May to critical acclaim, with the New York Times calling it "a knockout" and NPR calling it "a roaring and beautiful summit meeting." It has now landed on Best of the Year lists from MOJO, which includes it among the Top 10 Jazz Albums of 2015, and PopMatters, which has named it the No. 1 Best Jazz Album of the Year. "Together," says PopMatters, "the band is particularly wonderful."

     

    The Bad Plus Joshua Redman's tour of the US West Coast comes to a close with two sets at Kuumbwa Jazz in Santa Cruz on Wednesday and a four-night residency at SFJAZZ Center's Miner Auditorium in San Francisco Thursday through Sunday. For details on these and other upcoming shows, visit the tour page.
