Following his recent European tour with The Bad Plus, Joshua Redman has arrived in Ireland with the Joshua Redman Trio, featuring Reuben Rogers on bass and Gregory Hutchinson on drums, to launch its Irish tour with a concert at The Button Factory in Dublin tonight. The five-day, five-city tour includes stops in Limerick, Cork, Dún Laoghaire, as well as a show at The Mac in Belfast, Northern Ireland. See below for all of Redman’s currently scheduled tour dates; for additional details and ticket links, go to nonesuch.com/on-tour.
Redman spoke with the Irish Times about the tour and his unexpected musical career. Says Redman: “I’ve always felt like jazz is as much about the adventure, the journey as about the arrival, in the moment, trying to figure it out and trying to find something, as much as about the end product.” Read the complete article at irishtimes.com.
Joshua Redman returns to Europe in November for the launch of the 2012–13 season Wigmore Hall Jazz Series, which he has curated, succeeding label mate and frequent collaborator Brad Mehldau as the Hall’s Jazz Series curator, gathering a stellar line-up of artists to shape his first season. The London series begins November 2 with a performance by the Axis Saxophone Quartet, in which Redman joins fellow saxophonists Chris Cheek, Mark Turner, and Chris Potter (who can also be heard on Pat Metheny’s new Unity Band album).
Following the Wigmore performance, Redman joins up with James Farm, the collaborative band featuring Redman, pianist Aaron Parks, bassist Matt Penman, and drummer Eric Harland, which released its self-titled debut album on Nonesuch Records to critical acclaim in 2011. The New York Times calls their album “a model of dazzling proficiency.” The three-week tour will begin at the JazzOnze+ Festival in Lausanne, Switzerland, on November 3, and include stops across Germany, the Netherlands, France, Austria, and Poland.
