Featuring guest artist Joshua Redman, saxophone, performing in an exclusive Northwest appearance with the University of Puget Sound Jazz Band under the direction of Tracy Knoop.
"One of the most esteemed and charismatic artists of his generation," Grammy Award-nominated saxophonist Joshua Redman "is unparalleled among horn players today" (JazzTimes). Says the New York Times, "Mr. Redman is a supremely affable and flowing improviser, at times a borderline brilliant one, working in a glow of clarity." He has recorded or performed with artists such as Ray Brown, Dave Brubeck, Chick Corea, The Dave Matthews Band, Bill Frisell, Charlie Haden, Herbie Hancock, Roy Hargrove, Milt Jackson, Elvin Jones, Quincy Jones, Big Daddy Kane, B.B. King, The Lincoln Center Jazz Orchestra, DJ Logic, Yo Yo Ma, Branford Marsalis, John Medeski, Brad Mehldau, Pat Metheny, The Rolling Stones, The Roots, Soulive, and String Cheese Incident. From the London Evening Standard: "At his best, Joshua Redman seems a class apart for technique, invention and artistry. This U.S. maestro has contemporary saxophone covered. He can do screams, honks and circular-breathing arpeggios with the best of them."
Tickets: $14 for general admission; $7 with Puget Sound ID. Tickets are available through the Wheelock Information Center or at tickets.pugetsound.edu.
