‘Jazz can be rough or soft, cold or warm, light or dark. Jazz is for your heart...’ These words are saxophonist Joshua Redman’s answer to those who consider that Moodswing pushed the limits ‘too much’... Despite criticism by jazz authorities, this album has kicked started the first chapter in all these artists’ trajectory. Redman and his collaborators on the album, pianist Brad Mehldau, double bassist Christian McBride and drummer Brian Blade are among America’s best jazz musicians today. They are all part of famous ensembles and pursue solo careers. Their concerts are sold out months ahead, musicians line up to collaborate with them. Seeing such iconic figures back together is something really hard to come by. In fact, their reunion is as unmissable a moment as the rarest alignment of four planets!
