Here is today’s short statement from Blue Note Records:
” Saxophonist Joshua Redman, one of the most acclaimed and charismatic jazz artists to have emerged in the past 30 years, has signed to Blue Note Records, the legendary label and standard bearer of The Finest In Jazz Since 1939. Redman will release his Blue Note debut where are we this Fall and will be touring the project across the United States and Europe following the album’s release.
“I am so deeply honored and just flat-out thrilled to be joining the Blue Note family,” says Redman. “Blue Note albums have forever been an essential part of my musical (and spiritual) life — since well before I realized I even had one! I look forward, with equal parts gratitude and giddiness, to embarking on this new phase in my recording journey, along with one of the greatest labels of all time.”
“Over the last three decades, Joshua Redman has set the bar for courageous musical innovation and soulful expression,” says Blue Note President Don Was. “He is the living embodiment of the Blue Note ethos and it’s a dream come true to welcome him to the label.” (STATEMENT ENDS)
