    Joshua Redman "Builds Off Success" for "Compass" (Springfield Republican)

    "When a jazz trio works out well, then why not take things a step further by expanding the combo to a double jazz trio?" asks Kevin O'Hare of the Springfield Republican in Western Massachusetts. "That's what sax great Joshua Redman did with his new album Compass."

     

    O'Hare explains: "Building off the success of the Sonny Rollins-influenced sax/bass/drums trio that he used for his 2007 disc Back East, Redman doubled up for this follow-up. Frequently playing alongside two bassists and two drummers, he managed to combine their talents without the album succumbing to the complete mess that such an adventure might trigger in lesser hands."
