Celebrated tenor saxophonist and composer Joshua Redman’s 1994 album MoodSwing introduced his first permanent band, an astonishing collection by four precociously talented musicians who would rapidly establish themselves as creative beacons. After years of individual triumphs, Redman reunites the original group, all Koerner Hall regulars — pianist Brad Mehldau, who won the 2020 Grammy for Best Jazz Instrumental Album, bassist Christian McBride, and drummer Brian Blade — for an unforgettable performance of brand new material alongside signature work that showcases Redman’s “musical breadth, emotional depth and intellectual savvy” (Chicago Tribune).
