Joshua Redman Quartet | June 24

Jun 17, 2018

Joshua Redman is one of the most acclaimed and charismatic jazz artists to have emerged in the decade of the 1990s. Born in Berkeley, California, he is the son of legendary saxophonist Dewey Redman and dancer Renee Shedroff. He was exposed at an early age to a variety of musics (jazz, classical, rock, soul, Indian, Indonesian, Middle-Eastern, African) and instruments (recorder, piano, guitar, gatham, gamelan), and began playing clarinet at age nine before switching to what became his primary instrument, the tenor saxophone, one year later.

Almost every day, Bill Frisell gets up in the morning, has some coffee, and writes music. At this point, there are piles and piles and piles of single pages of staff paper filled with his graceful script. “I don’t know where the melodies come from,” says Frisell. “I try not to judge anything and just let them be.”

There are a lot of opportunities to appreciate jazz during the current week of Jazz Appreciation Month. Here are the highlights. First up is guitarist Earl Klugh’s Weekend of Jazz at the Broadmoor in Colorado Springs. This is the 15th year of the weekend of crossover jazz organized by the acoustic guitarist and company that usually sells out the 1,100 seats at the famed hotel/resort’s International Center.
