'Still Dreaming' with Joshua Redman, Ron Miles, Scott Colley & Dave King
Saxophonist Joshua Redman, last seen at Duke Performances' MONK@100 festival, is a rare musical explorer with an instantly identifiable and accessible sound. Since the nineties, Redman has regularly challenged contemporary jazz's fluid narratives as a prolific bandleader and sideman releasing acclaimed recordings that convey his admiration for the improvisational tradition. Still Dreaming is Redman's heartfelt acknowledgment of his late father Dewey Redman's 1976-1987 band, Old and New Dreams - a tribute ensemble featuring alumni of the trailblazing Ornette Coleman Quartet. Redman teams with fellow torchbearers, including cornetist Ron Miles, bassist Scott Colley, and drummer Dave King, for a requiem of free bop virtuosity that is an "homage both to that group, and to its inspiration's free and capricious spirit" (The Guardian).
