Overview

Through several recordings with the Elastic Band, his electric unit, Joshua Redman has made it his business to address vernacular and pop culture styles -- hip-hop, funk, blues, and heartland roots -- from a jazz perspective. Elastic Band's latest, Momentum, comprises primarily groove-based originals, plus covers from Sheryl Crow ("Riverwide"), Led Zeppelin ("The Crunge"), and Ornette Coleman ("Lonely Woman"). Redman deploys environments created by co-producer Sam Yahel on keyboards, and navigates them with a like-minded cohort (drummers Brian Blade, Jeff Ballard, and ?uestlove; bassists Flea and M'Shell Ndgeocello; guitarists Jeff Parker, Kurt Rosenwinkel, Eric Krasno, and Peter Bernstein; vibraphonist Stefon Harris; and trumpeter Nicholas Payton) who weave their individualistic tonal personalities into the sonic fabric at hand. Indeed, the arc of the recital ebbs and flows like the soundtrack to an imaginary film, of which Redman is the multilayered central character, stamped by a burnished, centered sound, an impeccable time feel, and a gift for distilling any musical structure to its essence and creating melodic improvisations that, for all the rigorous logic applied to their creation, project powerful emotion.
