Joshua Redman Trio at Ronnie Scott's

Jez Nelson presents saxophonist Joshua Redman in concert at Ronnie Scott's, with Reuben Rogers on bass and Greg Hutchinson on drums. Redman is known for his formidable technique and a charismatic stage presence, which has been credited with bringing new, young audiences to the music. His approach to music is forward-looking, while also rooted in melody, lyricism and traditional structures. However, on his album Compass, Redman embraces freer forms - it features his most experimental work to date.

The son of late avant-garde saxophonist Dewey Redman, Joshua grew up independently of his father and is a largely self-taught saxophonist. After winning the Thelonious Monk Prize in 1991, he gave up a career in law and quickly earned a worldwide reputation as both a sideman, with Pat Metheny, Chick Corea and Paul Motian, as well as a band leader.
