Joshua Redman Quartet

April 13
8 p.m.

Prodigious jazz tenor saxophonist Joshua Redman is a breathtaking player with sterling technique and a charismatic sound marked by a probing spirit, thoughtful melodicism, and dazzling improvs. His new album, Come What May, features his quartet (pianist Aaron Goldberg, bassist Reuben Rogers, drummer Gregory Hutchinson), which has the lithe synergy of 20 years together, but hasn’t recorded since 2001. All Redman originals, the new tunes have traces of blues, soul and funk, but glisten with the thrill and inquisitive quest of revelatory straightahead jazz.
