RoundAgain MoodSwing, the 1994 album of Joshua Redman's first quartet, is an amazing cocktail of four musicians (saxophone: Joshua Redman, piano: Brad Mehldau, bass: Christian McBride and drums: Brian Blade) who quickly established themselves in the music business.
Tours followed and the quartet consolidated for a year and a half, but with extroverted and charismatic musical personalities, the members of the group were soon destined to pursue their solo routes as musicians, conductors and composers. Although they collaborated occasionally through the decades, the four friends did not get together for the time being.
"I knew it would happen, but I didn't know when," Redman admits. "At the time, I thought maybe we'd get together in five years, which seems so far away when you're 25. But we were all very busy, and we needed space, both in our schedules and in our creative development. Over the past decade or more, however, I started talking about it more and more regularly, pestering everyone with the subject, maybe a little too much! It seemed like we were all interested, but it never fit into our respective schedules. Honestly, it took a real team effort, to finally make it happen."
An appointment not to be missed in short, for these four great musicians or rather, "A Moodswing Reunion".
