Joshua Redman is jazz royalty. His father is Dewey Redman, one of the great sax players of modern jazz. Joshua has come into his own as one of the greats of his generation. Kurt spoke with Redman last year, after he’d finished Back East. The album was inspired by Way Out West, the 1957 Sonny Rollins classic.
