    Joshua Redman Takes "Compass" Double Trio to Boston and Albany
    Michael Wilson

    After performing the second of two consecutive nights at New York's Highline last night, Joshua Redman and his Double Trio—bassists Larry Grenadier and Reuben Rogers and drummers Brian Blade and Greg Hutchinson—head up to Boston to play the Berklee Performance Center tonight, then out to Albany for their last show with all five musicians featured on Redman's new album, Compass.

    Previewing Friday's show at Albany's The Egg, the Schenectady Daily Gazette examines the special challenges and rewards brought by Redman's experiment with this expanded, double-trio format. "The idea worked so well on record," says the Daily Gazette, "that now Redman is experimenting with the double-trio format live."

    The article goes on to describe the Compass repertoire, all composed by Redman except for a rendition of Beethoven's "Moonlight" Sonata: "The material strikes a balance between embracing the inherent simplicity of the trio setting, while at the same time pushing that format to new boundaries."

    Metro Canada gives Compass three-and-a-half stars, with reviewer Ian Nathanson concluding, "Ear-pleasing jazz never sounded so arty yet so accessible."

    Devendra Banhart will perform four ticketed, live-streaming concerts on Wednesdays this September, from four locations across Los Angeles, in a series titled OLA: Devendra Banhart plays songs in the order they were written. Banhart hand-picked the locations for their cultural, historical, and emotional significance: the Mountain, Bob Baker Marionette Theater, The Broad, and the Underground Museum. The concerts explore—in chronological order—songs from his catalog of ten albums. Moses Berkson directs the series; each show will feature one of Banhart’s frequent musical collaborators—including Noah Georgeson, Josiah Steinbrick, Gregory Rogove and Todd Dahlhoff—on a selection of songs.

    Lianne La Havas will play a one-off solo live show at London's Roundhouse on Wednesday, July 15, which will include new songs from her forthcoming, self-titled album and throughout her catalog. This very special, multi-camera, one-night-only performance will be broadcast via YouTube; tickets go on sale this Friday. La Havas will donate her proceeds to Black Lives Matter–related organizations. She has just released a cover of Radiohead's "Weird Fishes," the latest single from the new album, due July 17. The new track is "glorious," says Uncut; Mojo calls it "a show-stopper."
