    Joshua Redman & Brad Mehldau's "Nearness" Nominated for Grammy Award

    Nearness, Joshua Redman's debut duo album with longtime friend, collaborator, and Nonesuch Records label mate Brad Mehldau, has been nominated for a Grammy Award for Best Jazz Instrumental Album. The 59th Annual Grammy Awards will be held on Sunday, February 12, 2017, at the Staples Center in Los Angeles and will be broadcast live on CBS.


    Nearness was recorded live on tour in Europe in 2011. "The pair are so well matched," says BBC Music Magazine. "Both are extraordinary, scintillating improvisers bursting with energy, yet they have great ears for one another." Mojo says: "They create a special telepathic musical synergy in each other’s company."


    To pick up a copy of Nearness, head to iTunes or the Nonesuch Store, where CD, LP, MP3, FLAC, and HD versions are all 15% off the everyday low prices listed on the site through the end of the year as part of the store's ongoing anniversary sale.
