Joshua Redman: Still Dreaming

With Ron Miles, Scott Colley, Brian Blade

Joshua Redmand and his mates standing in a red room

One of the 21st century’s most radical improvisers – Joshua Redman – brings together a supergroup that links the present to the spirit of his father, Dewey, and the music he made with Ornette Coleman.

Evoking memories of his father’s supergroup of the 70s and 80s – Old and New Dreams – Still Dreaming finds Redman performing with three of the most vital voices in contemporary jazz today; trumpeter Ron Miles, bassist Scott Colley, and drummer Brian Blade. Playing freshly minted originals alongside music from the Old and New Dreams legacy, the quartet combine raw spontaneity with flawless execution; creating joyously unpredictable results.

The members of Old and New Dreams (Dewey Redman, Don Cherry, Charlie Haden and Ed Blackwell) were all former sidemen of Ornette Coleman, and their influences set a precedent for this project as we find a new group honouring the past, whilst creating their own slice of history.

Opening the night is saxophonist Duncan Eagles with his trio, performing music from his upcoming record Citizen.
