Celebrate American Music Month with the Joshua Redman Quartet on November 21st

Joshua Redman returns to the University of Illinois’ Krannert Center for his sixth performance.  Audiences are drawn continually to the African, Indian, and Middle Eastern inflections of his style, as he melds them with the influences of contemporary artists, most notably his musical godfather Sonny Rollins.  Now, after more than 20 years of top-notch performances (with five Krannert Center appearances, including a never-to-be-forgotten concert on September 12, 2001) and prolific collaborations with a multitude of artists, including pianist Aaron Goldberg, bass player Reuben Rogers, and percussionist Gregory Hutchinson, this charismatic trailblazer can still draw a musical mob scene with his ability to “take a familiar series of notes and wring it into exotic new shapes” (Washington Post).
