    Redman fans flame of jazz fire at Berklee (Boston Herald)

    Joshua Redman and the double trio from his new album, Compass—drummers Brian Blade and Gregory Hutchinson and bassists Larry Grenadier and Reuben Rogers—performed music from the album at the Berklee Performance Center in Boston on Thursday.

     

    "With a revolving cast of four of the best rhythm section players in the business ... and with all four joining him at times, Redman navigated a constantly changing rhythmscape with the serene intensity that has marked his career," writes the Boston Herald's Bob Young.

     

    "His soprano sax infused two stunning ballads with a mood-altering ethereal shimmer," writes Young. And "Redman served as the ignition for a fire that grew hotter as the night progressed. The hottest moments - jaw-dropping exchanges between Blade and Hutchinson, Grenadier and Rogers and even all four - were as musical as they were inspired. This quintet was clearly having a blast, egging each other on, shouting at a fierce exchange, laughing at a cymbal burst. Intense? For sure. And fun to witness, too."
