Joshua Redman

Joshua Redman is without any doubt an acclaimed and charismatic jazz artists that has emerged in the decade of the 1990s. The son of legendary saxophonist Dewey Redman and dancer Renee Shedroff, Joahua was blessed with influences at an early age to a variety of musics (jazz, classical, rock, soul, Indian, Indonesian, Middle-Eastern, African) and instruments (recorder, piano, guitar, gatham, gamelan). His first instrument was the clarinet at age nine. Later, Joshua switched to what became his primary instrument of expression, the tenor saxophone, only one year later. Like many jazz artists, Joshua Redman was influenced by John Coltrane, Ornette Coleman, Cannonball Adderley and his father, Dewey Redman, as well as The Beatles, Aretha Franklin, the Temptations, Earth, Wind and Fire, Prince, The Police and Led Zeppelin drew Joshua more deeply into music. But although Joshua loved playing the saxophone and was a dedicated member of the award-winning Berkeley High School Jazz Ensemble and Combo from 1983-86, academics were always his first priority, and he never seriously considered becoming a professional musician.

rtist bio

ARTEMIS 

The cord of ARTEMIS is the pianist and composer Renee Rosnes, Artemis is a powerful ensemble of modern masters. Named for the Greek goddess of the hunt, the multinational, multigenerational band was founded in 2017 under the banner of International Women’s Day. Artemis’ performance at the 2018 Newport Jazz Festival was so dynamic, Blue Note Records President Don Was signed the group to the label. Tour dates across Europe and North America followed, including performances at such iconic stages as Carnegie Hall, the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, SFJAZZ, Chicago Orchestra Hall, as well as at the Detroit Jazz Festival, Saratoga Jazz Festival, and the Monterey Jazz Festival among others. Artemis has been featured on the cover of DownBeat, in Vanity Fair, on NPR’s Jazz Night in America. Their eponymously titled debut album contained a superb nine song set and was released in 2020. The recording was described by NPR as “a killer line-up of players who hail from all over the world…they all converge on this extremely cosmopolitan, sleek, rhythm-forward, modern sound.” Artemis will deliver their second album in Spring 2023. Each member of the band is a virtuoso player, composer and bandleader and the group’s repertoire reflects each individual’s sound. From original music to mind-bending arrangements of eclectic material, Artemis performs with power, passion, and high-wire intensity. 

“Collectively, the sheer force of the group’s ability is staggering!” 
~ Downbeat 

“Together they revealed a shared intensity and suggested something alluring and new. The group’s debut release, ‘Artemis’ delivers on that promise… The real headline here is this ensemble’s cohesion, its ability to move gracefully through various styles and moods and to sound, by turns, authoritative and playful, locked-in or loose-limbed. In the tradition of drummer Art Blakey’s Jazz Messengers, Artemis crafts an identifiable band sound rooted in sturdy yet flexible rhythms… Artemis means to upend expectations, gently and yet with force. Its music comes off like a nuanced argument for a fresh point of view.” 
~ Wall Street Journal 

“On a sunny August afternoon in 2018, I was among the thousands of fans attending the Newport Jazz Festival who had their minds blown by Artemis. Although each individual member of this supergroup is a bona fide jazz titan, these incredible musicians dwell in the rarefied air of bands whose whole is greater than the sum of its already sublime parts. Their musical conversation is sophisticated, soulful and powerful, and their groove runs deep.” 
~ Don Was, Blue Note Records President

HISTORY OF ARTEMIS

Throughout its eight-decade history, Blue Note Records has been celebrated as a home for the leading voices in jazz. The label continued that tradition with the release of the self-titled debut from ARTEMIS, a supergroup initially comprising of seven of the most acclaimed musicians in modern jazz. Featuring pianist and musical director Renee Rosnes, tenor saxophonist Melissa Aldana, clarinetist Anat Cohen, trumpeter Ingrid Jensen, bassist Noriko Ueda, drummer Allison Miller, and featured vocalist Cécile McLorin Salvant, ARTEMIS conjured a powerful collective voice from this septet of visionary bandleaders and composers. 

The band initially assembled at Rosnes’ behest for a European festival tour three years ago. “I chose musicians whom I respected and wanted to make music with,” the pianist says, “and after performing together, I realized that we had a brilliant chemistry and so we decided to explore the possibilities of what might develop over time. That’s how ARTEMIS was born.” 

The group is distinctive not only for bringing together singular artists, each renowned for their own remarkable solo careers; but for its multi-generational and globe-spanning line-up. Despite its relatively brief existence, ARTEMIS has been featured in Vanity Fair and on NPR’s Jazz Night in America, and has performed on some of the country’s most iconic stages, from Carnegie Hall, the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, the Tisch Center for the Arts to the Newport Jazz Festival. 

ARTEMIS is comprised of pianist Renee Rosnes, trumpeter Ingrid Jensen, tenor saxophonist Nicole Glover, alto saxophonist/flutist Alexa Tarantino, as well as bassist Noriko Ueda and drummer Allison Miller.
