    Redman "At the Top of His Game" at Village Vanguard (NY Sun)

    Joshua Redman and his trio, featuring drummer Brian Blade and bassist Reuben Rogers, performed music from his latest album, Back East, at the Village Vanguard Tuesday night.

     

    "Mr. Redman was in his best showman mode," writes New York Sun reviewer Will Friedwald. "He was constantly playful, exuberant, and at the top of his game. On every number, both the originals and the standards, he made a spectator sport of playing with everything he could: First he stated the melody, often as quickly as possible, then played with the tune, then played with the harmonies, then engaged in as much back-and-forth interplay with Messrs. Blade and Rogers as possible in a way that was reminiscent, as Mr. Redman suggested, of a basketball game being played on top of an auto race."
