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. He has remained a vital performer, collaborating with artists like Yo-Yo Ma and the Bad Plus. Redman also continues to explore a wide 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 also reunited his iconic '90s quartet featuring Brad Mehldau, Brian Blade, and Christian McBride for 2020's RoundAgain and 2022's LongGone.
