Joshua Redman

North America, Asia, Australia, South America

One of the most esteemed and charismatic artists of our time, Grammy Award nominated saxophonist Joshua Redman “is unparalleled among horn players today” (JazzTimes). From McCoy Tyner to Brad Mehldau, The Bad Plus, and Brooklyn Rider, Redman has collaborated with a diverse and prestigious list of musicians in the course of his career — all the while emerging as a modern jazz icon in his own right. Critics and fans alike are blown away by Redman’s passionate live performances and acclaimed recordings.

Son of legendary jazz saxophonist Dewey Redman, Joshua Redman has become a legend in his own right. As JamBase says, “When the conversation ensues about who is carrying on the great tradition of jazz musicianship today…if Joshua Redman’s name does not come up, the conversation is not worth having.” Now, the son pays homage to the father in Still Dreaming – a program of new compositions inspired by his father’s band, Old and New Dreams. In the 70’s and 80’s, Old and New Dreams featured an unforgettable lineup of Ornette Coleman band alumni – Dewey Redman, Don Cherry, Charlie Haden, and Ed Blackwell – performing a mixture of Coleman classics and their own brilliant compositions. In Still Dreaming, Joshua taps Brian Blade, Scott Colley, and Ron Miles to celebrate the tradition of innovation fostered by Coleman and upheld by Dewey in Old and New Dreams. With a nod to the past and a wink to the future, Joshua Redman’s Still Dreaming is the ultimate gift to his father.
