What’s happened to Joshua Redman anyway? He was one of jazz’s brightest stars about 15 years ago, but for some reason he’s not quite reached – or been seen to reach – the artistic heights of alot of his contemporaries.
No matter, I love his playing. And I especially love his playing on his 2000 album ‘Freedom in the Groove’. It’s probably his most ‘straight-ahead’ album, which is saying something since all the tunes are originals. This selection features 4 tracks from the album and I’ve included some low quality reference MP3’s too.
Have fun, and if you haven’t heard these tracks yet I almost guarentee you’ll want to play these charts after hearing him play them.
