  • Joshua Redman Quartet’s new album, Come What May, is out now on Nonesuch Records. This is the first recording in almost two decades for this group of musicians: the saxophonist and his longtime friends and colleagues pianist Aaron Goldberg, bassist Reuben Rogers, and drummer Gregory Hutchinson. "Nothing beats the cool confidence of a band who have spent years on the road,” says the four-star Times review. “It also helps that the seven Redman tunes here are so good ... Four men playing as one." The Quartet tours throughout this spring and summer.

  • About This Album

    MoodSwing, originally released in 1994, was Redman's first album with his own band—pianist Brad Mehldau, bassist Christian McBride, and drummer Brian Blade—and all original tunes. It is available again both on CD and in a double-LP, 180-gram vinyl reissue with CD. "Redman finds ingenious ways of creating a mode of acoustic jazz that is both entertaining and enlightening," said Entertainment Weekly. "MoodSwing plays like an artistic journey."
