    Nonesuch Events for the Long Weekend of January 16–19
    Michael Wilson

    Joshua Redman celebrates the release of his latest album, Compass, out this past Tuesday, in a conversation with critic and author Gary Giddins at the City University of New York's Center for the Humanities tonight. The discussion, which will focus on Redman's place in the history of jazz, will be held at Elebash Recital Hall in Manhattan and is free and open to the public. Info: centerforthehumanities.org.

    For the remainder of the weekend, Redman performs with one set of partners from the new album, Reuben Rogers and Greg Hutchinson—at the South Orange Performing Arts Center in New Jersey on Saturday and the Ridgefield Playhouse in Connecticut on Sunday—before a string of double-trio dates with all of the album's featured players next week. The Star-Ledger of New Jersey spoke with this "prince of two saxes" about the joy of playing with each of these trios and the prospect of playing live with both for the first time.
