Joshua Redman has a restless musical intelligence that continually pushes the boundaries of the jazz idiom. He brings that creative fire to his newest band, James Farm, as he returns to the quartet format.

Since the group's debut at the Montreux Jazz Festival in 2009, Redman and his James Farm collaborators Aaron Parks, Matt Penman and Eric Harland have fully explored a song-based approach to improvisation in performances that are rhythmically complex, harmonically rich and emotionally compelling.
