Joshua Redman Quartet, Live In Concert: Newport Jazz 2013

August 23, 2013 The sight of the saxophonist raising his foot at the apex of a gritty solo has become common to Newport Jazz crowds — always an entirely welcome vision. His latest record, Walking Shadows, is a collection of ballads, but this program from the main stage isn't quite so calm.

  • "Doll Is Mine" (Blonde Redhead)
Personnel
  • Joshua Redman, saxophones
