Birthday wishes go out today to Joshua Redman, the internationally acclaimed saxophonist and composer. The son of fellow jazzman Dewey Redman and Renee Shedroff, from an early age he was exposed to a broad gamut of music; these influences are readily evident in his work.
Jazz Crimes originally appeared on Joshua Redman's 2002 album Elastic; it is shown here being performed live, with Redman on tenor sax and with accompaniment by Brian Blade on drums and Sam Yahel on organ - the same personnel, it should be said, who played it on the album.
