Joshua Redman’s latest project, 3x3, is a celebration of the power of three—the music of three iconic jazz composers interpreted in the classic trio format of saxophone, bass and drums. The music is drawn from the works of Duke Ellington, Thelonious Monk and Wayne Shorter, each of whom Redman considers “not just relevant but foundational” for today’s musicians; and the setting returns to a format that he has excelled in throughout his career.

3x3 takes Redman into what, for him, is a rather atypical focus on repertory. "I'm generally a concept-averse dude," he admits, "and outside of my years with the SFJAZZ Collective, and to a lesser degree the Still Dreaming band, this may in a way be the most 'conceptual' thing I've ever done." Redman sees the sax/bass/drums format as presenting an adequate challenge for varying moods and approaches. So 3x3 finds Redman applying himself to some of jazz’s greatest works in one of jazz’s greatest formats. “These compositions offer as much inspiration as any three improvising musicians could ever ask for,” he summarizes. “I look forward to discovering them anew on the bandstand, and following them wherever the moment leads.”
