Joshua Redman Quartet

Tuesday June 18
Canadian Museum for Human Rights


One of the most esteemed and charismatic artists of our time, the ceaselessly innovative saxophonist Joshua Redman has become a legend in his own right. Critics and fans alike are blown away by Redman’s passionate live performances and acclaimed recordings. “When the conversation ensues about who is carrying on the great tradition of jazz musicianship today…if Joshua Redman’s name does not come up, the conversation is not worth having.” (JamBase)  

In the Joshua Redman Quartet, Redman evokes a sound that can be challenging, provocative, and forward-looking, but also hard-swinging, melodic, and soulful – music with a joyous and celebratory spirit. A new Quartet album – the first since 2001’s Passage of Time – is expected in Spring 2019. From McCoy Tyner to Brad Mehldau, The Bad Plus, and Brian Blade, Redman has collaborated with a diverse and prestigious list of musicians during his career, all the while emerging as a modern jazz icon. JazzTimes says it best: Joshua Redman is “unparalleled among horn players today.”
