Joshua Redman Quartet with Aaron Goldberg, Reuben Rogers & Gregory Hutchinson – 9:00 PM
One of the most esteemed and charismatic artists of our time, the ceaselessly innovative saxophonist 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 music today, if Joshua Redman’s name does not come up, the conversation is not worth having.” Critics and fans alike are blown away by Redman’s passionate live performances and acclaimed recordings. In the Joshua Redman Quartet, Redman evokes a sound that can be challenging, provocative, and forward-looking, but also hard-swinging, melodic, and soulful. A new Quartet album titled Come What May, the first since 2001’s Passage of Time has recently been released. JazzTimes says it best: Redman is “unparalleled among horn players today.” The ensemble on this concert date features pianist Aaron Goldberg, bassist Reuben Rogers, and drummer Gregory Hutchinson.
