Houston SUMMERJAZZ: August 19 and 20: Second annual summer festival – It’s not too late to get a pass for all 3 concerts and save!
Jazz superstar Joshua Redman’s latest project is a celebration of the power of three – the music of three iconic jazz composers interpreted in the classic trio format of saxophone, bass and drums. The music is drawn from the works of Duke Ellington, Thelonious Monk and Wayne Shorter, each of whom Redman considers “not just relevant but foundational” for today’s musicians; and the setting returns to a format that he has excelled in throughout his career. Featuring Larry Grenadier on bass and Marcus Gilmore on drums.
“These compositions offer as much inspiration as any three improvising musicians could ever ask for,” says Redman. “I look forward to discovering them anew on the bandstand, and following them wherever the moment leads.”
”Redman is among the most accomplished living practitioners of the jazz tenor saxophone.” — NPR Music
