    Redman Double Trio Exudes "Sheer Joy, Exhilaration" at Copenhagen Jazz Fest

    Joshua Redman brought his Double Trio—bassists Reuben Rogers and Matt Penman and drummers Gregory Hutchinson and Bill Stewart—to the Copenhagen Jazzhouse for two nights as part of the Copenhagen Jazz Festival. It's a format he introduced on his latest album, 2009's Compass.

     

    "With the Double Trio, Redman has unleashed a band capable of communicating the sheer joy and exhilaration of live music-making as vividly and completely as any I have ever heard," writes London Jazz News' Sebastian Scotney. "It is a band which puts Redman's wish to communicate with an audience in a perfect setting. The level of energy, rhythmic excitement and mischief which these five players deliver will stay in the mind for a very long time."

     

    Scotney goes on to say that "Redman is among the most communicative of players, he holds interest the whole time with his variety of expression and persuasiveness of line ... His compositions produce great variety, making the band suddenly switch from supercharged volume to playing softly, with tenderness and simplicity."

     

    The reviewer concludes if the audience members "were happy on arrival, they were clearly ecstatic by the time they departed. And they showed it."
