Saxophonist Joshua Redman is one of the leading players and personalities in jazz. His stellar recording's Wish and Moodswing not only set the tone for emerging jazz musicians back in the middle 90's but help establish the charismatic saxophonist to become a fan favorite and critical success. Throughout the years, Joshua has been extremely active as a band leader, recording artist and touring musician. He was also artistic director for the San Francisco Jazz Festival and the first leader of the critically acclaimed ensemble SF Jazz Collective from 2004-2007. Joshua continues to steadily work, record and tour with his own bands and is also a founding member of the collaborative group James Farm.
On this Traneumentary episode, Joshua shares his personal story of John Coltrane. Featured excerpts include: Acknowledgement," Crescent" and Wise One."
Jazz is a continuing revelation. The best show I ever attended was the
Roots Picnic at Penn's Landing in Philadelphia, or was it Robert
Glasper's Experiment at Lincoln Center, or was it Chick Corea with
Brian Blade at Oberlin College? Most of all I enjoy playing guitar and
composing beats with my Brooklyn-based group Space Captain.
