Joshua Redman Quartet with Kevin Hays, Joe Sanders and Jorge Rosy

Joshua Redman is one of the most acclaimed and charismatic saxophonists encountered in the nineties.

Son of the great tenor sax Dewey Redman, He graduated "summa cum laude "at Harvard. His debut as a professional musician caused a huge shock due to his maturity and his clear and defined style based on Sonny Rollins and John Coltrane. Since his early days, he came to play with jazz greats as Pat Metheny, Charlie Haden, Billy Higgins, Elvin Jones, Paul Motian, Joe Lovano and Chick Corea. At the 36th edition of the Festival (2012), the charisma of Joshua Redman with one of the best contemporary jazz groups, The Bad Plus, produced one of the most exciting moments in recent years. At the half of that concert they performed "People Like You "and at the end, the entire audience at Mendizorrotza Sports Centre stood and applauded for more than three minutes. Joshua Redman remained standing, embracing his sax and his eyes closed as if to absorb the audience applause. A moment that those who were there will never forget.
