    Joshua Redman Trio Launches Residency at Yoshi's Oakland
    Michael Wilson

    Bay Area native Joshua Redman is back on his home turf this week to play a five-night residency—nine shows—at Yoshi's in Oakland, beginning tonight, with bassist Matt Penman, of the SFJAZZ Collective, and drummer Greg Hutchinson, a featured player on Redman's latest Nonesuch release, the double-trio album Compass.

    Fellow saxophonist Branford Marsalis, who also plays in the area this week, tells San Jose Mercury News writer Andrew Gilbert of the special affinity between Redman and his drummer. "Hutch plays so beautifully, he's the perfect foil for Josh, because it's always nice to be able to play with musicians who don't necessarily think exactly like you," says Marsalis. "There's a certain kind of aggression he has playing with Josh. He has this roar."

    Redman talks about the making of the new record in a short video piece, featuring music from the album, a behind-the-scenes look inside the studio, and some very special family photos from his childhood in Berkeley at nonesuch.com/media.

    After the Yoshi's residency, the current trio heads to the other side of the Bay for a performance at the Kuumbwa Jazz Center in Santa Cruz on Monday. For more tour information, visit nonesuch.com/on-tour.

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."
