NPR's Tavis Smiley talks with composer and saxophonist Joshua Redman, artistic director of the San Francisco Jazz Collective. Redman has chosen to highlight the work of "free jazz" pioneer Ornette Coleman for the Collective's inaugural season. He's recruited highly respected musicians for the venture: Bobby Hutcherson, Nicholas Payton, Miguel Zenon, Josh Roseman, Renee Rosnes, Robert Hurst and Brian Blade are all tapped to participate.
