The Joshua Redman Quartet (Philadelphia Weekly)November 6, 2013
By Bill Chenevert
The thing about Redman isand this is worth knowing about tonighthes an extremely flexible saxophonist. In addition to having mastered tenor, alto and soprano horns, hes also perfected the art of bending his instrument to the genre. Hes played with tons of jazz greats, but he first crossed my radar playing with one of my all-time favorite jazz-soul outfits, Soulive. Redmans also worked with folks like the Roots, Yo-Yo Ma, John Scofield, Big Daddy Kane, DJ Logic and Quincy Jones. At the Annenberg, though, you can expect him to be dwelling in his latest, a more classical effort, this years Walking Shadows. And by bringing in friends to ably fulfill piano (Aaron Goldberg), bass (Reuben Rogers) and percussion duties (Gregory Hutchinson), Redmans sure to deliver yet another sophisticated, expertly executed jazz set.
