    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.

    Composer and lyricist Stephen Sondheim died at his home in Connecticut today at the age of 91. "An intellectually rigorous artist who perpetually sought new creative paths, Mr. Sondheim was the theater’s most revered and influential composer-lyricist of the last half of the 20th century," writes the New York Times in its obituary. Several Broadway, film, and original cast productions of his works have been recorded for Nonesuch Records, including A Little Night Music, Road Show, Sweeney Todd, Company, Bounce, Into the Woods, The Frogs, Evening Primrose, Saturday Night, and Gypsy. His songs have also been featured on Nonesuch albums by Mandy Patinkin, Audra McDonald, and Dawn Upshaw.
