Joshua Redman / Brad Mehldau Duo - Melbourne Festival

03 96 624 242

21 - 22 Oct 2016

Saxophonist Joshua Redman and pianist Brad Mehldau first worked together in the early 90s, when the jazz world was yet to be knocked over by their individual brilliance. Now they reunite to see what happens when two of contemporary music’s most towering figures join forces once more with a new album, Nearness.

Joshua Redman’s rise was rapid after winning the Thelonious Monk International Saxophone Competition in 1991, and he quickly found himself performing alongside some of the greatest in the field. His first self-titled solo album followed in 1993 and in the years since he has earned three Grammy nominations.

Brad Mehldau’s piano ingenuity is both virtuosic and playful, cerebral and sly. His concerts and albums frequently stray into unexpected territory—Beatles and Brahms, with even the occasional funk or drum’n’bass surprise—while always maintaining a rigorous technical command.
