    Joshua Redman's "Trios Live" Album Out Now

    Saxophonist Joshua Redman’s Trios Live is out now. The album was recorded at New York City’s Jazz Standard and Washington, DC’s Blues Alley during stands with two different trios—Redman and drummer Gregory Hutchinson with bassist Matt Penman (Jazz Standard) and Redman and Hutchinson with bassist Reuben Rogers (Blues Alley). Trios Live features four original tunes by Redman, including "Soul Dance," which you can hear below, and interpretations of three additional songs.

    The Financial Times gives the album four stars. "It’s a great set," writes FT reviewer Mike Hobart, "full of muscular rhythms and the abandon of live performance, yet as tightly argued as a rigorous studio date." Read more at ft.com.

    "The spirit in these live performances," says the Buffalo News music critic Jeff Simon, "is steadfast and superb."

    To pick up a copy of Trios Live, head to iTunes or the Nonesuch Store, where CD orders include a download of the complete album at checkout; the album is also available to purchase there as MP3 and FLAC lossless files.

    “This album is dedicated to all those folks, all around the world, of all ages, identities, allegiances, and persuasions, who come out, day to day, night after night, to see and hear live jazz,” Joshua Redman says in the album’s liner notes. “You bear witness to this music; you testify to that moment. You are here. You were there. You made it possible. You make it real. You are the reason. You were the point.”

    The New York Times has said, “Joshua Redman is one of the most visible jazz musicians of the last 15 years, which says something not just about his natural flow as an improviser and his command as a bandleader, but also about his willingness to use words…to represent jazz to the outside world.” Redman’s first self-titled studio album was released by Warner Bros. in 1993; eight additional records followed on Warner. His Nonesuch debut, Momentum, was released in 2005, along with the first of two SFJAZZ Collective albums on which he served as artistic director. Next Nonesuch released Back East, Redman’s first studio recording with an acoustic trio, followed by Compass, which featured double trios, and James Farm, a collaboration with pianist Aaron Parks, bassist Matt Penman, and drummer Eric Harland.

    Last year, Nonesuch released Walking Shadows, comprising 12 ballads; it was Redman’s first recording to include an orchestral ensemble, and it was produced by Redman’s friend and frequent collaborator Brad Mehldau. Redman regularly tours the world with various ensembles. In fall 2014, Redman, with Reuben Rogers and Greg Hutchinson will be playing trio dates in the US.
