    Joshua Redman's Landmark "MoodSwing" Returns on Vinyl Reissue

    When Joshua Redman's album MoodSwing was originally released, back in 1994, it was Redman's first to feature both his own band—pianist Brad Mehldau, bassist Christian McBride, and drummer Brian Blade—and all original tunes. Now, 15 years later, as such collaborations continue to flourish—with Blade having played drums on Redman's most recent release, Compass, and Mehldau set to welcome the saxophonist to his jazz series at Wigmore Hall next month—MoodSwing returns in a new Nonesuch vinyl reissue.

    "Redman finds ingenious ways of creating a mode of acoustic jazz that is both entertaining and enlightening," Entertainment Weekly wrote upon the album's initial release. "MoodSwing plays like an artistic journey."

    The 2009 MoodSwing reissue comes pressed on two LPs of 180-gram vinyl and includes the complete album on CD as well. Nonesuch Store customers also receive an instant download of all 11 tracks as high-quality 320 kbps MP3s.

    British rising country soul star Yola's debut solo album, Walk Through Fire, produced by The Black Keys' Dan Auerbach, will be released February 22, 2019, on Auerbach's Easy Eye Sound label, distributed by Nonesuch Records. "The moment I met Yola I was impressed," says Auerbach. "Her spirit fills the room, just like her voice … she has the ability to sing in a full roar or barely a whisper and that is a true gift." Videos for two songs from the album, "Faraway Look" and "Ride Out in the Country," can be seen here.
