The longtime friends, collaborators, and Nonesuch label mates spoke with NewsHour's Jeffrey Brown about making music together, or, as the show says, "how a passion for improvisation can make beautiful music." You can watch the interview and a performance of the album track "Old West" from the show here.

  • About This Album

    Working in an acoustic-trio setting, Redman mixes originals with standards chosen in homage to the sax players who’ve inspired him, including his late father Dewey. The Washington Post calls this one of Redman’s “most revealing and rewarding releases.”
