    Redman Gives "The Show of His Life" with Double Trio at Berklee (Boston Globe)

    Joshua Redman and his double trio—drummers Brian Blade and Gregory Hutchinson and bassists Larry Grenadier and Reuben Rogers—featured on his new album, Compass, performed music from the album at the Berklee Performance Center in Boston on Thursday, giving "the show of his life," raves the Boston Globe's Steve Greelee.

     

    "Redman has always been an entertaining musician, but Thursday he played more confidently and powerfully than ever," says Greelee. "The five musicians didn't play together the whole night; they often broke into various incarnations of a sax-bass-drums trio. But when all five did play at the same time, it made for a wild symbiosis."

     

    Greelee goes on to explain that "play in unison they did not, and never did. One would anchor the rhythm, and the other would augment with texture and accents. Redman, for his part, fueled them all with insistent, dramatic solos and seat-shaking two-note phrases."
