Review: Joshua Redman is back with a new quartet and new album, Still Dreaming, which features Ron Miles on cornet, Scott Colley on bass and Brian Blade on drums. The four musically and emotionally explore the many connections between the band members and the group, Old and New Dreams, a group composed of tenor saxophone player Dewey Redman (Joshua’s father), bassist Charlie Haden, cornet player Don Cherry and drummer Ed Blackwell. The music is full of heritage, but still moves the sound and colors of the music to today’s jazz language and vitality.
