News & Reviews

  • The ECHO Jazz 2017 Award nominations have been announced by the German Recording Academy, and among the nominees are Joshua Redman and Brad Mehldau their debut duo album, Nearness; drummer Jeff Ballard for the Brad Mehldau Trio's latest album, Blues and Ballads; drummer Antonio Sánchez for the Pat Metheny Unity Group album The Unity Sessions; and trumpeter Cuong Vu for the album Cuong Vu Trio Meets Pat Metheny

  • Joshua Redman and Brad Mehldau were featured on PBS NewsHour yesterday, the day they were nominated for a Grammy Award for Best Jazz Instrumental Album for their debut duo album, Nearness. 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

    MoodSwing, originally released in 1994, was Redman's first album with his own band—pianist Brad Mehldau, bassist Christian McBride, and drummer Brian Blade—and all original tunes. It is available again both on CD and in a double-LP, 180-gram vinyl reissue with CD. "Redman finds ingenious ways of creating a mode of acoustic jazz that is both entertaining and enlightening," said Entertainment Weekly. "MoodSwing plays like an artistic journey."
