    Joshua Redman Takes Trio to New Heights on "Compass" (Glide)

    Joshua Redman talks with Glide magazine about his new album, Compass, and its particular double-trio format and "the thought processes before, during and after the new album was recorded, without destroying the mystery at the heart of his music," writes Glide's Doug Collette.

     

    "Joshua Redman returned to the acoustic realm of modern jazz in 2007 with Back East where his playing carried a definite sense of breaking free from preconceptions, self-imposed and otherwise," writes Collette. "The saxophonist’s new album Compass extends that sensation of abandon in no uncertain terms."

     

    Collette goes on to say: "Compass simultaneously broadens and deepens the man’s invigorating approach to improvisation. Together with bassists Larry Grenadier and Rueben Rogers, and drummers Brian Blade and Gregory Hutchinson – Redman takes the trio approach to new heights and even goes so far as to perform with the entire lineup in a double-trio setting."
