Synopsis

Amazon.com
Tenor saxophonist Joshua Redman, the son of the magnificent but undervalued Dewey Redman, was touted as one of the young lions of jazz in the 1990s, spearheading a neo-bop revival upon the release of his 1992 debut. The acclaim was quickly followed by charges of hype, but on his second album, Wish, Redman proved worthy of the accolades. This is a surprisingly mature work for such a young player. Redman's soloing is assured, conversant with the blues, and filled with minor surprises. His exchange with guitarist Pat Metheny is superb, and the master rhythm section of Charlie Haden on bass and Billy Higgins on drums affords Redman plenty of rhythmic subtlety to apply his nuanced playing to. --John Swenson

CD Reviews

Melodic Wonder
Brian Currin | Chicago | 05/01/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This CD is so melodic. Joshua's phrasing and development of his solos are always keeping you interested. Not to mention the very melodic originals. Also, Metheny and crew are really backing him up with 100% committment to the music at hand."
A Must Own!!

(5 out of 5 stars)

"For a modern artist with a classic style you will definitely want to check out Joshua Redman. Listen for Pat Metheny. Jazz with an Afro-Latin twist. Extraordinary. It will make you Wish for more."
Great second album by young redman to add to diskography

(5 out of 5 stars)

"Excellent second album in Redman's series of six to complete ones library of Joshua Redman. However,for the first time listener,check out "Freedom In The Groove". It has better tunes(most written by Redman), and better performances all the way to the end track."
