Info zu RoundAgain

"MoodSwingy, das 1994 erschienene Album von Joshua Redmans erstem, aber kurzbeständigen Quartett, enthielt bemerkenswerte Stücke von vier jungtalentierten Musikern, die sich schnell als führende Kreativkräfte etablierten. Nach Jahren, in denen sie jeweils eigene Triumphe verbuchen konnten, haben sich der Saxofonist Redman, Pianist Brad Mehldau, Bassist Christian McBride und Drummer Brian Blade. nun für das neue, gemeinsame Album RoundAgain wieder zusammengeschlossen.

Als die Terminkalender der Vier einmal abgestimmt waren, wurde Redman klar, dass die neue Aufnahme anders angegangen werden musste als die erste, die ursprüngliche. Es oblag damals mir, die meisten Entscheidungen zum Repertoire zu treffen, bevor wir MoodSwing aufnahmen, erklärt er. Aber diesmal entschieden wir, dass es sich wie eine heutige Zusammenkunft von uns Vieren anfühlen sollte. Es durfte keine bloße Wiederbelebung des Joshua Redman Quartet von 1994 sein. Klar, ich hatte über 20 Stücke parat, die perfekt gewesen wären für diese Band. Aber es war wichtig, dass es ein wirklich kollektives Unterfangen werden musste. Jeder sollte bandneues Material dazu beitragen. In Anbetracht der Grooves, Styles und Stimmungen, die uns vertraut sind, wusste ich, dass wir Vielfalt kreieren und gleichsam ein fokussiertes, bündiges Programm schaffen konnten. Wir mussten die Musik nur spielen und dabei herausfinden, welche spezielle Kombination an Songs für diesen Anlass die richtige sein würde.

Sämtliche sieben Stücke unterstreichen, wie magisch das Zusammenspiel der Vier geblieben ist. Wir probten einen Nachmittag lang, spielten zwei Abend in The Falcon in Marlboro, New York, und gingen dann ins Studio, berichtet Redman. In dem Moment, in dem wir zu spielen begannen, war die Magie nach all den Jahren immer noch dieselbe.

Joshua Redman
is one of the most acclaimed and charismatic jazz artists to have emerged in the decade of the 1990s. Born in Berkeley, California, he is the son of legendary saxophonist Dewey Redman and dancer Renee Shedroff. He was exposed at an early age to a variety of musics (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 what became his primary instrument, the tenor saxophone, one year later. The early influences of John Coltrane, Ornette Coleman, Cannonball Adderley and his father, Dewey Redman, 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. But although Joshua loved playing the saxophone and was a dedicated member of the award-winning Berkeley High School Jazz Ensemble and Combo from 1983-86, academics were always his first priority, and he never seriously considered becoming a professional musician.

In 1991 Redman graduated from Harvard College summa cum laude, Phi Beta Kappa with a B.A. in Social Studies. He had already been accepted by Yale Law School, but deferred entrance for what he believed was only going to be one year. Some of his friends (former students at the Berklee College of Music whom Joshua had met while in Boston) had recently relocated to Brooklyn, and they were looking for another housemate to help with the rent. Redman accepted their invitation to move in, and almost immediately he found himself immersed in the New York jazz scene. He began jamming and gigging regularly with some of the leading jazz musicians of his generation: Peter Bernstein, Larry Goldings, Kevin Hays, Roy Hargrove, Geoff Keezer, Leon Parker, Jorge Rossy and Mark Turner (to name just a few). In November of that year, five months after moving to New York, Redman was named the winner of the prestigious Thelonious Monk International Saxophone Competition. This was only one of the more visible highlights from a year that saw Redman beginning to tour and record with jazz masters such as his father, Jack DeJohnette, Charlie Haden, Elvin Jones, Joe Lovano, Pat Metheny, Paul Motian, and Clark Terry. For Joshua, this was a period of tremendous growth, invaluable experience and endless inspiration. Visit: http://www.joshuaredman.com/bio

Brad Mehldau
Jazz pianist Brad Mehldau has recorded and performed extensively since the early 1990s. Mehldau’s most consistent output over the years has taken place in the trio format. Starting in 1996, his group released a series of five records on Warner Bros. entitled The Art of the Trio (recently re-packaged and re-released as a 5-Disc box set by Nonesuch in late 2011). During that same period, Mehldau also released a solo piano recording entitled Elegiac Cycle, and a record called Places that included both solo piano and trio songs. Elegiac Cycle and Places might be called “concept” albums made up exclusively of original material with central themes that hover over the compositions. Other Mehldau recordings include Largo, a collaborative effort with the innovative musician and producer Jon Brion, and Anything Goes—a trio outing with bassist Larry Grenadier and drummer Jorge Rossy.

His first record for Nonesuch, Brad Mehldau Live in Tokyo, was released in September 2004. After ten rewarding years with Rossy playing in Mehldau’s regular trio, drummer Jeff Ballard joined the band in 2005. The label released its first album from the Brad Mehldau Trio—Day is Done—on September 27, 2005. An exciting double live trio recording entitled Brad Mehldau Trio Live was released on March 25th, 2008 (Nonesuch) to critical acclaim. On March 16, 2010 Nonesuch released a double-disc of original work entitled Highway Rider, the highly anticipated follow up to Largo. The album was Mehldau’s second collaboration with renowned producer Jon Brion and featured performances by Mehldau’s trio—drummer Jeff Ballard and bassist Larry Grenadier—as well as percussionist Matt Chamberlain, saxophonist Joshua Redman, and a chamber orchestra led by Dan Coleman. In 2011 Nonesuch released Live in Marciac – a two CD release with a companion DVD of the 2006 performance, and Modern Music, a collaboration between pianists Brad Mehldau and Kevin Hays and composer/arranger Patrick Zimmerli. In 2012 Nonesuch released an album of original songs from the Brad Mehldau Trio – Ode - the first from the trio since 2008’s live Village Vanguard disc and the first studio trio recording since 2005’s Day is Done. Ode went on to garner a Grammy-Nomination. Nonesuch released the Brad Mehldau Trio’s Where Do You Start, a companion disc to the critically acclaimed Ode, in the fall of 2012. Whereas Ode featured 11 songs composed by Mehldau, Where Do You Start comprises the Trio’s interpretations of 10 tunes by other composers, along with one Mehldau original. In 2013 Mehldau produced and performed on Walking Shadows, the acclaimed Nonesuch release from Joshua Redman. 2013 also saw a number of collaborative tours including a duo tour with mandolin virtuoso Chris Thile, piano duets with Kevin Hays and a new electric project with prodigious drummer Mark Guiliana entitled “Mehliana.” Mehliana: Taming the Dragon, the debut release by Mehliana, was released to critical acclaim in early 2014.
