    Joshua Redman's Landmark "MoodSwing" Returns on Vinyl Reissue

    When Joshua Redman's album MoodSwing was originally released, back in 1994, it was Redman's first to feature both his own band—pianist Brad Mehldau, bassist Christian McBride, and drummer Brian Blade—and all original tunes. Now, 15 years later, as such collaborations continue to flourish—with Blade having played drums on Redman's most recent release, Compass, and Mehldau set to welcome the saxophonist to his jazz series at Wigmore Hall next month—MoodSwing returns in a new Nonesuch vinyl reissue.

    "Redman finds ingenious ways of creating a mode of acoustic jazz that is both entertaining and enlightening," Entertainment Weekly wrote upon the album's initial release. "MoodSwing plays like an artistic journey."

    The 2009 MoodSwing reissue comes pressed on two LPs of 180-gram vinyl and includes the complete album on CD as well. Nonesuch Store customers also receive an instant download of all 11 tracks as high-quality 320 kbps MP3s.

    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.
