Dewey Redman, 1931-2006

Goodbye, Mr. Redman.

Jazz saxophonist Dewey Redman died Saturday. He was 75. He was perhaps best known for his work with Keith Jarrett and with the group Old & New Dreams. He was also Joshua Redman's father. Redman's solo on this 1992 date showcases his tough, burly tone and is a great example of Redman's rare ability to play both inside and out. The soulful piano solo is by Charles Eubanks.
