JOSHUA REDMAN & FRIENDS

Sat April 2 @ 10:00 pm

Joshua Redman is one of the most acclaimed and charismatic jazz artists to have emerged in the decade of the 1990s. Born in Berkeley, California, he is the son of legendary saxophonist Dewey Redman and dancer Renee Shedroff. He was exposed at an early age to a variety of musics (jazz, classical, rock, soul, Indian, Indonesian, Middle-Eastern, African) and instruments (recorder, piano, guitar, gatham, gamelan), and began playing clarinet at age nine before switching to what became his primary instrument, the tenor saxophone, one year later. The early influences of John Coltrane, Ornette Coleman, Cannonball Adderley and his father, Dewey Redman, as well as The Beatles, Aretha Franklin, the Temptations, Earth, Wind and Fire, Prince, The Police and Led Zeppelin drew Joshua more deeply into music. 

With over two dozen albums as either a bandleader or co-leader from 1993 to date, several of these earning Grammy Award nominations, Redman runs sidesaddle with frequent collaborators and renowned artists such as Pat Metheny, Brian Blade, Christian McBride, Brad Mehldau, and more. Notably, from 2000 – 2007 he was the Artistic Director of SF JAZZ, and co-founder of the SF JAZZ Collective. 

Stylistically, Redman is known for literally and figuratively stretching the shape of the trio format approach, including his audacious configuration of his piano-less “double-trio” comprised of two players each on drums, bass, and saxophones. Most recently, he’s reunited with his original quartet; Brad Mehldau on piano, Christian McBride on bass, and Brian Blade on drums to release 2020’s “RoundAgain” – the group’s first recording since 1994. Reportedly, Redman is currently working on a new album with players both new and old in 2022.
