No jazz setting requires more concentration and sensitivity than the duo,a format that strips away everything extraneous,leaving the musicians in exposed, impromptu dialog. Saxophonist Joshua Redman and Pianist Brad Mehldau, two of the most influential, visible and acclaimed improvisers in today's jazz world, share a vast range of concepts, notions and feelings of ripe for exploration. Linked since Redman hired Mehldau for his wonderfully inventive mid-90's quartet, they have played an essential role defining progressive mainstream jazz ever since. It's a stylistically encompassing ethos that can be seen in their recent song-oriented projects, like Redman's cooperative, rock-influenced band James Farm and Mehldau's orchestral double album Highway Rider, a collaboration with producer Jon Brion featuring Redman. Even when Redman lived in New York, he maintained a high Bay Area profile, partly through his work as artistic directorof the SFJAZZ Spring Season and as a founding member of the SFJAZZ Collective. But Mehldau has been a relatively scarce presence here in recent years. After honing their high-wire act in Europe, Redman and Mehldau make their eagerly anticipated West Coast duo debut. Definitely, a modern jazz happening, and one not to miss.JoshuaRedmanBradMehldaujazz
