From The Monterey Jazz Festival

The Monterey Jazz Festival’s Artist-In-Residence works year-round with young musicians in performances and clinics at our Next Generation Jazz Festival, Summer Jazz Camp, and at the Monterey Jazz Festival. With the program now in its 8th year, the Artist-In-Residence for 2011 MJF will be award-winning saxophonist and two-time Grammy nominee, saxophonist Joshua Redman. He will join jazz luminaries and past Artists-In-Residence Branford Marsalis, Regina Carter, Kurt Elling, Terence Blanchard, Christian McBride, Wynton Marsalis and members of Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra, and Dianne Reeves in this important and vital role.

Joshua Redman will act as a clinician, performer, and competition judge during the Next Generation Jazz Festival, April 1-3, 2011; as a mentor and clinician at MJF’s Summer Jazz Camp, June 13-28, 2011; and will appear at the 54th Annual Monterey Jazz Festival Presented By Verizon, September 16-18, 2011. MJF/54 marks Mr. Redman’s seventh performance on the stages of Monterey since 1985, when he was a member of the Berkeley High School Big Band, that year’s winner of MJF’s California High School Big Band Competition. Mr. Redman was also a member of Monterey Jazz Festival’s California High School All-Star Band in 1986. He will be a guest soloist with his former band, now called the Next Generation Jazz Orchestra on September 18, 2011.

We’re pleased to welcome Joshua Redman as our 2011 Artist-In-Residence.
