Joshua Redman Quartet returns with new album LongGone
RoundAgain was the Joshua Redman Quartet’s first recording in more than two decades and showcased the group still performing in top form, with each musician showing they had improved since their last outing. The album received two Grammy nominations and debuted at No. 1 on the current traditional jazz albums chart in the U.S. and at No. 1 on the jazz and blues chart in the U.K.
The Joshua Redman Quartet started in the early ‘90s as a group of talented jazz upstarts in their initially short time together. Since disbanding, the members have each distinguished themselves as top-level musicians in their respective careers.
“I realized almost immediately that this band wouldn’t stay together for very long,” Redman reflects now. ”They were without a doubt, for our generation, among the most accomplished and innovative on their respective instruments. I knew better than anyone else just how incredibly lucky I was to have even that short time with them.”
Now, the group is back — and LongGone proves it’s more than a one-off reunion.
Here’s the track listing for LongGone:
- Long Gone
- Disco Ears
- Kite Song
- Ship to Shore
- Rejoice (Live)
The Joshua Redman Quartet’s LongGone is out Sept. 9, 2022, via Nonesuch Records.
