    Joshua Redman Opens Wigmore Hall Jazz Series; James Farm Launches European Tour
    Jimmy Katz

    James Farm—the collaborative band featuring saxophonist Joshua Redman, pianist Aaron Parks, bassist Matt Penman, and drummer Eric Harland—launch a 13-city tour of Europe with a performance at the JazzOnze+ Festival in Lausanne, Switzerland, on Saturday, November 3, followed by tour stops throughout Germany, Netherlands, France, Belgium, Austria, and Poland in the coming weeks. See below for all of the European tour dates; for additional details and ticket links, visit nonesuch.com/on-tour.

    Prior to the James Farm tour, Joshua Redman launches of the 2012–13 season Wigmore Hall Jazz Series, which he has curated, succeeding label mate and frequent collaborator Brad Mehldau as the Hall’s Jazz Series curator, gathering a stellar line-up of artists to shape his first season. The London series begins tonight with a performance by the Axis Saxophone Quartet, in which Redman joins fellow saxophonists Chris Cheek, Mark Turner, and Chris Potter (who can also be heard on Pat Metheny's new Unity Band album).

    James Farm released its self-titled debut album on Nonesuch Records in April 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. The New York Times calls it "a model of dazzling proficiency."

    To pick up a copy of James Farm, head to the Nonesuch Store, where CD orders include an instant download of the album at checkout.
