Joshua Redman is one of the most acclaimed and charismatic jazz artists on the scene today. Following DACAMERA appearances with his Still Dreaming Quartet and 3×3 Trio, Redman returns with his latest project, a quintet featuring vocalist Gabrielle Cavassa. Where Are We is about America, Redman says; “at once a celebration and a critique. But it is also, to varying degrees, a ballads album, a standards album, an album of romantic longing, an album of social reflection, an album of melodic invention, an album of improvisational adventure, an album of mashups (stylistic and titular), perhaps even a tribute album of sorts.”

“Redman is among the most accomplished living practitioners of the jazz tenor saxophone.” – NPR

“One of the most accomplished and versatile players on the saxophone scene, his attention to melody and exquisite soloing abilities through salient motivic saturation is breathtaking.” — All About Jazz
