    Video: James Farm Performs Music from New Album on WNYC's "Soundcheck"

    James Farm—the collaborative band featuring saxophonist Joshua Redman, pianist Aaron Parks, bassist Matt Penman, and drummer Eric Harland—kicked off its four-night residency at the Jazz Standard in New York City last night with two stellar sets featuring songs from their self-titled debut album, recently released on Nonesuch Records. The quartet continues its run through the weekend, with two performances each weekend night.
