    Joshua Redman is joined by drummer Brian Blade, bassist Scott Colley, and cornetist Ron Miles for Still Dreaming, an album inspired by his father Dewey Redman's band Old and New Dreams, out now.

"It all makes for a jazz adventure that begs for repeated listening," says the Lexington Herald-Leader.
