Joshua Redman Elastic Band

Every few years it seems as if the jazz media go out of their way to hype one young artist, overpraising him to such an extent that it is easy to tear him down when the next season arrives. In the early '90s, Joshua Redman briefly became a media darling, but in his case, he largely deserved the attention. A talented bop-based tenor man, Redman (who will probably never be an innovator) is a throwback to the styles of Red Holloway and Gene Ammons, but also has an inquisitive spirit and can play intriguing music when inspired.

The son of the great tenor saxophonist Dewey Redman, Joshua graduated from Harvard and after debating whether to become a doctor, he seemed headed toward studying law at Yale. However, he came in first place at the 1991 Thelonious Monk competition, landed a recording contract with Warner Bros., and was soon on the cover of most jazz magazines. Pat Metheny was a guest on one of his albums (the Redman-Metheny interplay during their engagements was quite memorable), and although Redman has had success constantly touring with his own group, it is a pity that his apprenticeship period as a sideman was so brief.

In 1996, Joshua Redman recorded and briefly toured with Chick Corea's "Tribute to Bud Powell" sextet; the solo Timeless Tales (For Changing Times) followed in 1998, and in 2000 he returned with Beyond. Passage of Time appeared in early 2001 and was followed by a lengthy tour of the U.S. The next year, Elastic appeared in stores with an uncharacteristically humorous sight gag adorning the cover. That also reflected on the music, which was more adventurous and playful than in the past, owing a debt to his electronica and experimental rock influences. In 2005, Redman made the move to Nonesuch and released Momentum. Back East followed in 2007, with Compass arriving early in 2009. Two years later, Redman appeared on the debut album from the jazz quartet James Farm, and in 2013, he delivered the orchestral album Walking Shadows. In 2014, he returned with the concert album Trios Live, featuring tracks from two separate performances; one at N.Y.C.'s Jazz Standard and the other at Washington's Blues Alley. ~ Scott Yanow, Rovi

Bio is crap. Redman deserves the hype hands down. Great player. I can't believe they would say he will never be an innovator. They don't know his music/playin g very well.
CRAPtastic bio leaving me feeling quite flat. Joshua Redman remains one of the better concerts I've seen...ever. Boo Scott Yanow. Boo.
I'm a huge fan of Redman, surprised to see such a biased review (because this is not a bio). Guess I'm just gonna head on over to Spotify.
It is slightly sad (BIO)..... I haven't followed Josh long, but I know greatest when I hear it..... This Bio is very Biased...... . .
Terrible Bio, probably one of the best living sax players in my opinion. His original work is out of this world. And what is this Redman (who will probably never be an innovator) garbage...

I don't know why but this bio/review of Redman puts me in a foul mood... I love this man's music and feels like this bio takes away from his art...
A good solid player. Commited to jazz too. He deserves the hype.

Joshua also had a long run with the SF Jazz Festival (artistic director) and instrumental i s t in the acclaimed traveling SF Jazz Collective along side Bobby Hutcherson,a n d others. So he is well versed in classic, but for his age group it is not surprising to be experimental . VMT
We need to get the album "Elastic" up on here, too!
joshua redman is amazing. preetworks.
