Generation-defining jazz musicians and long-time collaborators Joshua Redman, Brad Mehldau, Christian McBride and Brian Blade reunite to revisit their classic 1994 album, MoodSwing.

Performing new material along with tracks from their 1994 record, the jazz supergroup reunites for this very special show. MoodSwing broke the mould for jazz recordings in the 1990s, creating a sound that reached beyond cerebral arrangements and delivered contemporary jazz with emotion and expression. The quartet is headed up by acclaimed saxophonist Joshua Redman, alongside pianist Brad Mehldau, bassist Christian McBride and composer, arranger and multi-instrumentalist Brian Blade. Their sound is sophisticated yet spontaneous: rich, bluesy and contemporary.
