Joshua Redman & Brooklyn Rider
May 18, 2018
Venue Matthews Theatre
Esteemed saxophonist Joshua Redman joins forces with the game changing string quartet Brooklyn Rider, along with fellow all-star collaborators Satoshi Takeishi (percussion) and Scott Colley (bass), for an entirely unique convergence of their respective worlds. The group first started working together in early 2015 to explore Aspects of Darkness and Light, a work designed to be a true meeting of equals in its combination of jazz and classical elements.
One of the most admired and charismatic artists of his generation, the ceaselessly innovative saxophonist Joshua Redman “is unparalleled among horn players today” (JazzTimes). From McCoy Tyner to Brad Mehldau, The Bad Plus, and now Brooklyn Rider, Redman has collaborated with a diverse and prestigious list of musicians over the course of his career, all the while emerging as a modern jazz icon in his own right.
Hailed as "the future of chamber music,” Brooklyn Rider offers eclectic repertoire in gripping performances that continue to attract legions of fans and draw rave reviews from classical, world, and rock critics alike.
Their McCarter performance marks the first public outing for this collaboration.
