Tord Gustavsen with Simin Tander and Jarle Vespestad (evening performance)
12 Nov 2016
A truly world class duo, saxophonist Joshua Redman and pianist Brad Mehldau first performed together in Redman’s renowned quartet which gained prominence during the 1990s. Over the next two decades, both grew as extraordinary leaders in their own ensembles, reaching international and critical acclaim while forging their own distinctive voices as modern-day icons.
'The sheer skill of these two musicians demanded sharp attention from start to finish.' (The Boston Globe)
In 2011 they came together as a duo, and now they’re performing in the UK for the first time. An intimate duo, their shared skill and understanding creates deeply spiritual music that still swings. A new live album, Nearness, will be released on Nonesuch Records in September to coincide with this date.
This evening’s concert is one set of 90 mins starting at 8pm.
This show forms part of the EFG Excellence Series
