    Redman Trio Gives "Utterly Captivating" Show in Atlanta

    The Joshua Redman Trio—featuring Reuben Rogers on bass and Gregory Hutchinson on drums—performed what Arts ATL's Jon Ross calls "an utterly captivating trio concert" at Spivey Hall in Atlanta on Saturday.

     

    "This current lineup is a modern band in all senses of the word, performing free-flowing music that is based in swing and bebop but is built on an enhanced harmonic lexicon. During the show, neither Redman nor his bandmates were confined to a single style," says Ross. "Redman’s authoritative tenor and Hutchinson’s all-out rock drumming transformed the group into an arena band while still grounding the music in jazz."

     

    Ross later concludes: "Spivey Hall’s programming routinely features national musicians at the top of their craft, and Saturday’s event was a bar-setting beginning to a metro Atlanta jazz season that also features tenor saxophonists Branford Marsalis, Joe Lovano and Ravi Coltrane. If these tenors (and their sidemen) put on even half the show Redman’s trio did, then Atlantans of ample means and the requisite tenacity to navigate traffic will be in for quite a survey of the modern saxophone this year."
