While Joshua Redman has never shied away from his patrimony, he’s never pursued it either. That is, until forming Still Dreaming. A project that epitomizes the theme of “Traditions in Transition,” Still Dreaming draws inspiration from Old and New Dreams,  the iconic 1980s band featuring Redman’s father, saxophone great Dewey Redman, and fellow definitive Coleman collaborators Ed Blackwell, Charlie Haden, and Don Cherry. Redman assembled this band to pay tribute to his late father, with bassist Scott Colley (a student of Haden), Cherry disciple Ron Miles on trumpet and drummer Brian Blade, born to the same proud New Orleans tradition as Blackwell. Redman broke into the jazz scene in the early 1990s performing widely with his father, recording two albums with him. But as a bandleader in his own right, he’s followed his own trajectory, rarely intersecting with the gut-bucket avant-garde sound that defined Dewey’s aesthetic. Over the course of four albums for ECM and Black Saint, O&ND played brilliantly reimagined versions of Ornette’s hurly burly compositions and originals (including the Dewey Redman tune that gave the band its name). Still Dreaming boldly expands on this essential legacy, creating mesmerizing music for a new century.

"Old and New Dreams, a quartet active roughly during the Carter and Reagan eras, celebrated the rambling spirit of Ornette Coleman, from a close vantage: all of its members, including the tenor saxophonist Dewey Redman, were former band mates of his. Which in some respects makes Still Dreaming a tribute to a tribute — though the group has the right lineup for such a task, starting with Mr. Redman’s son the saxophonist Joshua Redman, and extending to the cornetist Ron Miles, the bassist Scott Colley and the drummer Brian Blade.
