Redman Takes “Double Trio” On The Road

Truth be told, I am more than a bit disappointed that I won’t be able to make it down to DC on Tuesday, to witness what is destined to go down as one of the most glorious, uplifting and redemptive events in the complicated history of our deeply troubled yet ever resilient country. Hopefully, though, we’ll be able to do a little celebrating of our own through the music…

The album he refers to is titled Compass and came out on January 13. Redman continues the tour tonight at The Highline Ballroom in New York City before bringing the double trio to the Berklee Performance Center in Boston on Thursday and closes out the run at The Egg in Albany on Friday. At the time of posting, tickets are still available for all three shows which are sure to be an interesting exercise in live jazz instrumentation.

Redman also recently appeared as a scheduled special guest with Umphrey’s McGee during their recent New Year’s Eve run on December 30th. Jazz guitarist Stanley Jordan was also featured.

  1. Josh sounded terrific on tuesday evening at Highline Ballroom. A great way to spend Obama day. A very smart, well paced set made up of almost all Redman original tunes ( the exception being a Shorter linked tune), the leaser played a few things with all four and broke down into trios for about half the toonage. He used to be so steeped in Sonny and Wayne that it was a bit off-putting, but over the past five years or so, he sounds original and flowing. Great phrasing, totally melodic and also harmonically happening. If you can, go and check them out.
