    Nonesuch Events for the Long Weekend of August 29–September 1
    Michael Wilson

    Here is our weekly list of just some of the many events going on across the globe this long, Labor Day weekend featuring Nonesuch artists:

    Joshua Redman and his trio, Reuben Rogers on bass and Greg Hutchinson on drums, are in Johannesburg, South Africa, tonight and tomorrow night for the city's Standard Bank Joy of Jazz series. Previewing the sets at the Bassline Club, the city's Tonight newspaper says "Redman's strong bop side comes to the fore" on his latest Nonesuch release, Back East. "This is a good example of where Redman is today, and what we can look forward to at Joy of Jazz," writes Tonight's Don Albert, who also recommends the SFJazz Collective album for a very different side of Redman.
