JOSHUA REDMAN STILL DREAMING QUARTET FEATURING REDMAN, RON MILES, SCOTT COLLEY, AND BRIAN BLADE APPEARS IN JAZZ AT LINCOLN CENTER’S THE APPEL ROOM, MARCH 31 - APRIL 1

New York, New York (February 3, 2017)Joshua Redman and his newly formed Still Dreaming quartet will make their Jazz at Lincoln Center debut with four performances, March 31 – April 1, in Jazz at Lincoln Center’s The Appel Room. Redman, one of the best know saxophonists in the world, convenes trumpeter-cornetist Ron Miles, bassist Scott Colley, and drummer Brian Blade - three notable voices in contemporary jazz – for these special engagements.

Joshua Redman is one of the most acclaimed and charismatic jazz artists to have emerged in the decade of the 1990s.

He was exposed at an early age to a variety of music (jazz, classical, rock, soul, Indian, Indonesian, Middle-Eastern, African) and instruments (recorder, piano, guitar, gatham, gamelan), and began playing clarinet at age nine before switching to the tenor saxophone. The early influences of John Coltrane, Ornette Coleman, and his father as well as The Beatles, Aretha Franklin, the Temptations, Earth, Wind and Fire, Prince, The Police and Led Zeppelin drew Joshua more deeply into music. Redman has performed with musicians including  Brian Blade, Ray Brown, Dave Brubeck, Chick Corea, The Dave Matthews Band, Jack DeJohnette, Bill Frisell, Aaron Goldberg, Larry Goldings, Charlie Haden, Herbie Hancock, Roy Hargrove, Roy Haynes, Billie Higgins, Milt Jackson, Elvin Jones, Quincy Jones, Big Daddy Kane, Geoff Keezer, B.B. King, The Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra, DJ Logic, Joe Lovano, Yo Yo Ma, Branford Marsalis, Christian McBride, John Medeski, Brad Mehldau, Pat Metheny, Marcus Miller, Paul Motian, MeShell Ndegeocello, Leon Parker, Nicholas Payton, John Psathas, Simon Rattle, Dewey Redman, Dianne Reeves, Melvin Rhyne, The Rolling Stones, The Roots, Kurt Rosenwinkel, John Scofield, Soulive, String Cheese Incident, Clark Terry, Toots Thielemans, The Trondheim Jazz Orchestra, Mark Turner, McCoy Tyner, Umphrey’s McGee, US3, Bugge Wesseltoft, Cedar Walton, Stevie Wonder and Sam Yahel. Joshua Redman has been nominated for two Grammy Awards and has garnered top honors in critics and readers polls of DownBeat, Jazz Times, The Village Voice and Rolling Stone. He wrote and performed the music for Louis Malle’s final film Vanya on 42nd Street, and is both seen and heard in the Robert Altman film Kansas City.
