    Joshua Redman Trio: Stars, Keys, and Hutch (NPR Jazz)

    The Joshua Redman Trio—featuring bassist Matt Penman and drummer Gregory Hutchinson—performed at the Jazz Standard in New York on Thursday as part of a five-night residency at the venue.

     

    The set "showed tremendous equipoise," says Josh Jackson of A Blog Supreme: NPR Jazz, "and the saxophonist wore the boutonniere of stardom so nonchalantly as to render it a useless ornament. Strangely, this five-night run marks his first appearance at the club. In a set that started with Rodgers and Hammerstein's 'Surrey With the Fringe on Top' and ended with Led Zeppelin's 'Black Dog,' Redman's pianoless trio ... invested themselves in a kind of anaerobic workout in front of a capacity house."

     

    Jackson goes on to say: "This was a saxophone trio that promised intensity, and it delivered a few cathartic moments."
