    James Farm's BeanTown Jazz Festival Performance Featured on NPR's "JazzSet"
    Jimmy Katz

    James Farm—a collaborative band featuring saxophonist Joshua Redman, pianist Aaron Parks, bassist Matt Penman, and drummer Eric Harland—released its self-titled debut album on Nonesuch almost exactly one year ago, on April 26, 2011. The album uses traditional acoustic jazz quartet instrumentation for its song-based approach to jazz and incorporates the members’ myriad influences: rock, soul, folk, classical, electronica. Last September, the band performed songs from the album in the Opening Night concert of the BeanTown Jazz Festival at Boston's Berklee Performance Center. Now, on this week's episode of NPR's JazzSet, host Dee Dee Bridgewater broadcasts that performance, recorded by NPR member station WGBH in Boston. Listen online at npr.org.

    Joshua Redman is currently touring North America with label mate Brad Mehldau and will take time out to meet up with his Trio, featuring Reuben Rogers and Gregory Hutchinson, for a week's residency at the Village Vanguard in New York City next week, followed by the remaining dates with Mehldau at the end of the month. (The final date of the duo tour is a return to Boston's Berklee Performance Center on April 28.) Later this spring, Redman and James Farm head to Japan for a four-night residency at the Blue Note Tokyo. For additional details and ticket links, go to nonesuch.com/on-tour.

    To hear clips from James Farm and pick up a copy of the album, which the New York Times calls "a model of dazzling proficiency," head to the Nonesuch Store, where CD orders include high-quality, 320 kbps MP3s at checkout.
