Album Review
Joshua Redman may be the person to unite warring sects, since he is neither a committed neobop conservative nor a jazz/hip-hopper or "acid" player. He is one of the few young lions that has made great music from day one. Redman's soaring tone, intelligently constructed solos, control, and ability to play riveting uptempo, midtempo, or slow works has justifiably made him a sensation. When the lineup includes Pat Metheny offering marvelous solos on electric and acoustic and Charlie Haden and Billy Higgins being their customary masterful selves on bass and drums, you have the kind of great, uncompromising jazz work you seldom get from a major label in the 1990s. -- Ron Wynn
