About Joshua Redman

An acclaimed jazz tenor saxophonist, Joshua Redman is a thoughtful performer whose robust improvisational style balances the post-bop tradition with an ear for advanced harmony and playful exploration. The son of saxophonist Dewey Redman, he broke through winning the 1991 Thelonious Monk Competition. A Grammy nomination followed for 1993's Joshua Redman, and he topped the jazz charts with 1993's Wish with guitarist Pat Metheny. Redman has collaborated with artists like Yo-Yo Ma and the Bad Plus, and explored an array of sounds, as on 2005's Momentum with his funk- and hip-hop-influenced Elastic Band, 2011's acoustic quartet album James Farm, and 2018's Still Dreaming, an homage to his father's work in Ornette Coleman's Old & New Dreams band. He reunited his '90s quartet featuring Brad Mehldau, Brian Blade, and Christian McBride for 2020's RoundAgain and 2022's LongGone, and made his Blue Note debut with 2023's where are we.
