2019-2020 CONCERT SERIES

APRIL 4, 2020 7:30 PM Illsley Ball Nordstrom Recital Hall at Benaroya Hall

APRIL 5, 2020 2:00 PM Kirkland Performance Center

Superstar of the tenor saxophone Joshua Redman joins the SRJO in a concert of his own compositions and his favorite jazz classics, paying tribute to the greats of the tenor saxophone and more. He has released more than 20 albums as leader (on Warner Bros. and Nonesuch records) and has been featured on albums and tours with numerous leading jazz artists such as Chick Corea, Elvin Jones, Joe Lovano, Pat Metheny, Christian McBride, Cedar Walton, Charlie Haden and Billy Higgins. The son of famed tenor saxophonist Dewey Redman, Joshua was the winner of the 1991 Thelonious Monk International Saxophone Competition, gaining him immediate worldwide attention. His first album as a leader was released in 1993, and earned him his very first GRAMMY nomination (and several other nominations have followed). Since then, his work with the Joshua Redman Quartet, the Elastic Band, the SFJAZZ Collective, The Bad Plus, and even the New Zealand Symphony, has brought him critical acclaim around the globe. Don’t miss this opportunity to hear the SRJO with one of the leading jazz artists of our time.

Join SRJO for what will certainly be one of the region’s top artistic events of the year: the premiere of a new work that we have commissioned from six-time GRAMMY winner Christian McBride. He was the undisputed star of SRJO’s 2016-17 concert season and is recognized as one of the greatest bassists of our time. He is a dominant contributor to the New York jazz scene, the host of NPR’s national weekly show Jazz Night in America, and a leading figure on today’s international jazz stage, performing with such groups as Wynton Marsalis’ Jazz at Lincoln Center and the bands of Herbie Hancock, Sonny Rollins, and Chick Corea, plus his own fabulous trio that has repeatedly thrilled audiences at sold-out concerts in Seattle. Don’t miss this virtuoso of the double bass as we invite him back to Seattle and Kirkland for a concert of his favorite big band music, and the premiere of what will become a major new addition to the jazz repertoire.
