Joshua Redman: New Dreams

Joshua Redman: New Dreams

Joshua Redman has embraced a vibrant career for more than 25 year. Since being launched into the public eye in 1991 after winning the Thelonious Monk International Jazz Competition, Redman has paved his career with acrobatic hard-bop, groove-oriented funk and sensitive ballads. For the first time the saxophonist confronting the music of his father, saxophonist Dewey Redman. In this episode of Jazz Night in America Josh Redman and a group featuring  Ron Miles (cornet); Scot Colley (bass); and Brian Blade (drums) play homage to Old and New Dreams — a band from 1976 that lasted until 1987 — that featured Dewey Redman and other contemporaries of Ornette Coleman.  [Photo: flickr.com/photos/pixelillo/]
