Joshua Redman and Brooklyn Rider's Sun on Sand is out now on Nonesuch Records. The album comprises eight compositions from a suite by composer Patrick Zimmerli. Each piece in the suite, which premiered at London’s Wigmore Hall in 2014, represents a different expression of light. Bassist Scott Colley and drummer Satoshi Takeishi perform as well. To pick up a copy, head to iTunes, Amazon, and the Nonesuch Store, where CD orders include a download of the complete album at checkout; it can also be heard on Apple Music and Spotify. Redman previously worked with Zimmerli when the latter created orchestral arrangements of Redman’s compositions for the 2013 Nonesuch album Walking Shadows.

Originally from New York, composer and saxophonist Patrick Zimmerli lives and works between his hometown and Paris. His music is at the crossroads of classical music and contemporary jazz. He collaborates with many international musicians, including Brad Mehldau, Brian Blade, Luciana Souza, Ethan Iverson, The Knights, and the Escher String Quartet. His music has been performed at Carnegie Hall and Town Hall in New York, Wigmore Hall in London, Salle Pleyel in Paris, Konzerthaus Großer Saal in Vienna, Sala São Paolo, and SFJAZZ in San Francisco. His previous work on Nonesuch includes Redman’s Walking Shadows and Brad Mehldau and Kevin Hays’ Modern Music (2011).

Joshua Redman’s first album on Nonesuch was the Grammy-nominated Momentum (2005). His other releases on the label include Back East, Compass, and Trios Live, all of which explore the trio format; MoodSwing (1994, re-issued); Walking Shadows (2013), his first recording to include an orchestral ensemble; The Bad Plus Joshua Redman (2015), a collaboration with the acclaimed trio; Nearness (2016), a duo album with longtime friend and collaborator Brad Mehldau; the 2018 Grammy–nominated Still Dreaming—an album inspired by his father Dewey Redman’s 1976–1987 band, Old and New Dreams; and Come What May with the Joshua Redman Quartet, featuring pianist Aaron Goldberg, bassist Reuben Rogers, and drummer Gregory Hutchinson. Redman currently tours with his trio with Rogers and Hutchinson; his quartet; Still Dreaming, with Ron Miles, Scott Colley and Brian Blade (David King on recent tours); and occasionally with the collaborative group James Farm, with Aaron Parks, Matt Penman, and Eric Harland. James Farm has two releases on Nonesuch: their 2011 self-titled album and 2014’s City Folk.

Hailed as “the future of chamber music” (Strings), Brooklyn Rider offers eclectic repertoire in performances that attract fans and draw critical acclaim from classical, world, and rock writers. A deeply collaborative and generative ensemble, Brooklyn Rider recently released The Butterfly with Irish fiddler Martin Hayes and Dreamers with Mexican jazz vocalist Magos Herrera. This past season, Brooklyn Rider debuted their Healing Modes project, which presents Beethoven’s Opus 132 string quartet alongside five new commissions by Reena Esmail, Gabriela Lena Frank, Matana Roberts, Caroline Shaw, and Du Yun. Other recent recording projects include The Fiction Issue with music by Gabriel Kahane, so many things with Swedish mezzo-soprano Anne Sofie von Otter, A Walking Fire and The Brooklyn Rider Almanac, The Impostor with banjo legend Béla Fleck, Silent City with Iranian kamancheh player Kayhan Kalhor, and the much-praised Brooklyn Rider Plays Philip Glass. The ensemble’s violinist Johnny Gandelsman launched In A Circle Records in 2008 with the release of Brooklyn Rider’s debut recording Passport, followed by Dominant Curve in 2010, Seven Steps in 2012, and Spontaneous Symbols in 2017.

The San Francisco Chronicle says that Music for Ensemble and Orchestra "is a beautiful and dramatically charged masterpiece, but its impact goes even further than that."
