Joshua Redman Trio @ Aladdin Theater, 14-April-2008

Last night I headed over to the Aladdin Theater in the ‘Brooklyn’ neighborhood, and saw the Joshua Redman Trio.  Redman plays tenor and soprano sax, with Matt Penman on bass and Greg Hutchinson on bass.  They played two sets and a quick encore, and I thought it was really an excellent performance.  A nice variety of originals along with some standards (“Surrey with the Fringe on Top” from Oklahoma, and Monk’s “Trinkle Tinkle” among others).  Penman was one of the more inventive bassists I’ve seen in awhile, often playing multiple strings at once, and Hutchinson showed a lot of range on drums as well.  Now I need to see if Redman’s recent CD ‘Compass’ achieves the same level (hear some on his mySpace page)!
