Pianist Brad Mehldau and saxophonist Joshua Redman first performed together in Redman’s acclaimed quartet during the 1990s. In the next two decades, both Grammy-nominated musicians grew as leaders in their own ensembles. Now modern-day icons, they've reunited to tour with their new album, Nearness.
David Baldwin, executive director of Fontana, talks to Cara Lieurance about Redman and Mehldau's histories and provides a sneak peek into their music as a duo.
Fontana presents Redman and Mehldau on Saturday, September 24 at 7:30 pm. Details available at Fontana's website.
