    Joshua Redman Quartet's New Album, "Come What May," Out Now on Nonesuch Records

    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 recently Grammy-nominated saxophonist and his longtime friends and colleagues pianist Aaron Goldberg, bassist Reuben Rogers, and drummer Gregory Hutchinson. Previous releases were Beyond (2000) and Passage of Time (2001). The Quartet, which has toured internationally over the last several years, recorded seven Redman tunes for Come What May. "Nothing beats the cool confidence of a band who have spent years on the road,” says Chris Pearson’s four-star review in the Times of London. “It also helps that the seven Redman tunes here are so good ... Four men playing as one."

    To pick up a copy, head to your local record store, iTunes, Amazon, and the Nonesuch Store, where CD and vinyl orders include a download of the complete album at checkout. You can also hear the album now on Spotify and Apple Music.

    The Guardian has called Redman “one of the 21st century’s finest jazz improvisers,” and the Boston Globe said of the group’s recent Newport Jazz Festival performance, “There was tenor Joshua Redman with his quartet, showing how to build excitement and get the crowd screaming without pressing or compromising his art.” The Joshua Redman Quartet tours internationally throughout this spring and summer; see tour dates below.

    Redman recently said of Goldberg, Rogers, and Hutchinson, in Denver’s Westword newspaper, “They’re some of my favorite musicians in the world. We’ve played so much over the years and have been together on the road so much, on and off the bandstand, there’s just that sort of camaraderie and friendship and genuine love for and understanding of each other that, for me, [is] the ideal situation for making music. When you have that level of trust and empathy, both musically and personally, it allows you to be truly relaxed and free; and those are really good pre-conditions for magic to potentially happen.

    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; and the 2018 Grammy-nominated Still Dreaming—an album inspired by his father Dewey Redman’s 1976–1987 band, Old and New Dreams.

    Redman currently tours with his trio with Rogers and Hutchinson; his quartet; Still Dreaming, with Ron Miles, Scott Colley and Brian Blade; 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.

    Joshua Redman and Brooklyn Rider's Sun on Sand is due October 4 on Nonesuch. 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. Sun on Sand is available to pre-order with an instant download of the album track "Between Dog and Wolf," named for a French expression for dusk.

    Portuguese fado singer Carminho's album Maria is due in the US on September 27 via Nonesuch Records. Its title is her given first name and a name in Portugal that's both traditional and a popular choice among contemporary young parents, as fado is both part of a tradition and belongs to today's world. Carminho, who wrote many of the lyrics and songs and produced the record herself, considers it a dialogue between herself and two fado singers who blazed a trail for her: Beatriz da Conceição and Teresa Siqueira (her mother). London Jazz News calls it "a beautifully realized, remarkably varied yet uniformly gorgeous album." Pre-order to download the tracks "O Menino e a Cidade" and "Estrela" now.
