    Joshua Redman to Tour Ireland with Trio, Curate Wigmore Hall Jazz Series

    Joshua Redman, who is currently touring Europe as the special guest of The Bad Plus, is set to make his Irish debut when the Joshua Redman Trio, featuring Reuben Rogers on bass and Gregory Hutchinson on drums, tours Ireland this autumn. The five-day, five-city tour begins at The Button Factory in Dublin on September 12 and includes stops in Limerick, Cork, Dún Laoghaire, as well as a show at The Mac in Belfast, Northern Ireland. Tickets go on sale today.

    This autumn also marks the start of the 2012–13 season Wigmore Hall Jazz Series curated by Redman. The saxophonist succeeds 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 series begins November 2 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). The program includes both jazz standards and original compositions, arranged and created by members of the group. Cheek returns for the second show in the series on February 1, 2013, for a performance with the Argentine pianist, vocalist and bandleader Guillermo Klein, pianist Aaron Goldberg, and saxophonist Miguel Zenon. And on May 11, Redman is joined by bassist Christian McBride for a duo concert at the Hall. Tickets for all three concerts in the series are on sale now at wigmore-hall.org.uk.
