    Joshua Redman and Tigran Hamasyan perform in the free online edition of the Tokyo Jazz Festival taking place this Saturday and Sunday from 8pm JST (7am EST) both days via the festival's YouTube channel. Redman plays two sets: one with pianist Hiromi Uehara and another in a virtual reunion with his Still Dreaming band mates cornetist Ron Miles, bassist Scott Colley, and drummer Dave King (sitting in for Brian Blade). The group, which the Washington Post called "consistently riveting," performs songs from the 2018 Grammy-nominated album Still Dreaming, inspired by Redman's father Dewey's band Old and New Dreams.

    Brad Mehldau's new album, Suite: April 2020, is now available on CD and standard vinyl, following the release of the digital and limited-edition deluxe vinyl editions earlier this year. While sheltering at home with his family in the Netherlands during the COVID-19 pandemic this spring, Mehldau wrote twelve new songs about what he was experiencing; he was able to record them safely in an Amsterdam studio, along with interpretations of three tunes that mean a great deal to him. One thousand numbered and signed copies of the deluxe edition were sold, with a minimum of $90 from each sale donated to the Jazz Foundation of America’s COVID-19 Musician’s Emergency Fund. Brad Mehldau has several solo concerts in Europe ahead.
