Joshua Redman – Trios Live
(Nonesuch, VÃ–: 20.06.2014)
Nonesuch Records releases saxophonist Joshua Redmanâ€™s Trios Live on June 20, 2014. The album was recorded at New York Cityâ€™s Jazz Standard and Washington, DCâ€™s Blues Alley during stands with two different triosâ€”Redman and drummer Gregory Hutchinson with bassist Matt Penman (Jazz Standard) and Redman and Hutchinson with bassist Reuben Rogers (Blues Alley). Trios Live features four original tunes by Redman and interpretations of three additional songs (track list below). The album is available for pre-order at nonesuch.com and comes with an instant download of Redmanâ€™s song â€œSoul Danceâ€ from the record.
â€œThis album is dedicated to all those folks, all around the world, of all ages, identities, allegiances, and persuasions, who come out, day to day, night after night, to see and hear live jazz,â€ Redman says in the albumâ€™s liner notes. â€œYou bear witness to this music; you testify to that moment. You are here. You were there. You made it possible. You make it real. You are the reason. You were the point.â€
Redmanâ€™s first self-titled studio album was released by Warner Bros. in 1993; eight additional records followed on Warner. His Nonesuch debut, Momentum, was released in 2005, along with the first of two SFJAZZ Collective albums on which he served as artistic director. Next Nonesuch released Back East, Redmanâ€™s first studio recording with an acoustic trio, followed by Compass, which featured double trios, and James Farm, a collaboration with pianist Aaron Parks, bassist Matt Penman, and drummer Eric Harland.
Last year, Nonesuch released Walking Shadows, comprising 12 ballads; it was Redmanâ€™s first recording to include an orchestral ensemble, and it was produced by Redmanâ€™s friend and frequent collaborator Brad Mehldau. Redman regularly tours the world with various ensembles. In fall 2014, Redman, with Reuben Rogers and Greg Hutchinson will be playing trio dates in the U.S.
