DIGIPACK EDITION

The new recording by pianist Brad Mehldau and saxophonist Joshua Redman defines a compelling jazz sound. They have been long-time collaborators since they first began playing together in Redman’s quartet in the 90’s, but this compilation of originals and standards recorded live in Europe in 2011 is their first duo album.

These are dazzlingly collaborative performances that reveal Redman and Mehldau to be a highly intuitive and an harmonically clever and skillful team with intimate, flowing and profoundly moving sax and piano duet performances.

Few records released this year better define what jazz sounds like today, even if there isn’t a hip noun to describe it.
