(GREAT BARRINGTON, Mass.) – Grammy Award-nominated jazz saxophonist and composer Joshua Redman will make his second appearance at the Mahaiwe on Sunday, June 26, at 7pm. The Joshua Redman Quartet, featuring Aaron Goldberg (piano), Reuben Rogers (bass), and Gregory Hutchinson (drums), performs new original music and jazz classics.

After winning the Thelonious Monk International Jazz Saxophone Competition in 1991, Joshua Redman garnered a major-label recording deal and was hailed as one of the new young lions of jazz, getting college students to flock to concert halls (including William College’s Chapin Hall) to hear original and improvised music in the same way Dave Brubeck once did several generations earlier.

The son of jazz saxophonist Dewey Redman and dancer and librarian Renee Shedroff, Joshua Redman cites John Coltrane, Ornette Coleman, Cannonball Adderley, as well as the Beatles, Aretha Franklin, the Temptations, Earth, Wind & Fire, Prince, the Police and Led Zeppelin as musical influences on his post-bop style. He’s recorded jazz versions of Bob Dylan’s “The Times They Are a-Changin’,” Eric Clapton’s “Tears in Heaven,” and “Eleanor Rigby” by the Beatles.

Tickets are $30 to $80, plus a limited number of $15 tickets available for audience members ages 30 and younger through the Mahaiwe ArtSmart Tix program.

The Mahaiwe is located at 14 Castle Street in Great Barrington, Massachusetts. Box office hours are Wednesday through Saturday from noon to 6pm and three hours before show times. For tickets and information, visit the Mahaiwe or call 413.528.0100.
