Editorial Reviews

2011 release, a collaborative effort between Joshua Redman and fellow Jazz travelers Aaron Parks, Matt Penman and Eric Harland. Since they've already guest-starred on each other's recordings, James Farm is a natural progression for these Jazz musicians. James Farm made its debut at the 2009 Montreal Jazz Festival and has since performed dates in North America and Europe, garnering praise for its live set and fueling anticipation for this studio debut, which features tunes by each of the four musicians.

Customer Reviews

The newest comer to this very tight rhythm section is Joshua Redman.
Jonathan Guarriello
This, the debut release of the modern jazz supergroup James Farm, is unquestionably one of my favorite jazz albums of the year!

Five DAZZLING Stars. Outstanding compositions and performances! "James Farm" is the eponymous studio recording debut of the all-star jazz quartet that burst on the scene with its acclaimed first appearance at the 2009 Montreal Jazz Festival. It is composed of tenor and soprano sax titan Joshua Redman, Aaron Parks' keyboard fireworks, the superb Matt Penman on double-bass, and DownBeat Critics' 2-time "rising star" winner, Eric Harland, on drums. For those of us who missed the previous fanfare, like me, this 'forward looking' recording is somewhat of a shocker. On this CD, each member of the group contributes compositions and they perform as a cohesive, balanced unit that swings hard and is both highly intellectual and very emotional. Sometimes this distinctive group briefly veers away from the deeper waters of jazz within a song, adding variety to the mix. The compositions are original, very intricate, and often stunning in execution, with the faster numbers like "Chronos" and the boiler works of "I-10" riding over churning tempos, often interspersed with quieter interludes, with dazzling solos by all players. The turbulent "Coax" is a perfect example of their approach, giving as much attention to the composition's group form as to the improvisations, taking us through minutes of shifting tempos and mysterious moods before evolving into an ethereal solo by Parks, followed by more group interaction, eventually erupting into a blazing solo by Redman. While mainly an acoustical group, Parks also effectively utilizes some electronic keyboards as on "If by Air". "Polliwog" has one of Redman's many superb solos of the date, pushed along by Penman and Harland, mainly using drums and rim shots.Read more ›

So from the title of my review the readers can probably tell that I'v been anxiously awaiting this album. This album represents the music of four of jazz's brightest minds and talents. I believe that this is an album that will be important in the development of what I'v been calling 21st century Jazz. This is because all four members of this band lead their own groups & contribute greatly to our great american art form we call jazz.

The quartet consists of Joshua Redman on tenor & soprano saxes. Alot has been written about Redman some great praise others not so great but in my opinion I'v been following Redman's music since 1996 with his release of an album that I believe was a blueprint at that time for the future to come, that album is "Freedom in The Groove". Since that time Redman has taken his place as one of the veteran masters of the jazz world always striving for excellence & a fresh perspective, he's also never been afraid to leave his musical comfort zone going fearlessly from his electric organ groove trio Elastic to a straight up nod to Sonny Rollins & the saxophone trio with Back East or even exploring a double trio format on his last albumCompass. Aaron Parks is the youngest member of this quartet but for Aaron age means nothing. Parks is a rising piano& composing talent of great depth & expansive vision. Aaron's debut album for Blue Note Invisible Cinema was a great piece of music & I hear alot of Park's compositional influence on Jame's Farm.

I've been to the concert of James' Farm in Rotterdam, Holland. I have not seen Joshua Redman for many years, but I have to admit that he blew us out of our seats! The band is great, very innovative music. I enjoyed it a lot and therefor I bought the CD right after the concert and got it signed by Joshua Redman and his band members. In case you are a fan, simply buy this album, you'll love it!

This is the best new jazz recording that I have heard in years. Strong compositions from all 4 members allow for a unique platform for their solos. Cohesive interplay is much more noticeable than many jazz recordings.

This, the debut release of the modern jazz supergroup James Farm, is unquestionably one of my favorite jazz albums of the year! Sometimes getting this many great players/leaders together in one group could lead to mediocre music that wouldn't quite add up to the sum of its parts. In the case of James Farm, however, these four incredible players contribute their talents to each members' compositions, which seem to blend stylistically due to this band's cohesion as a unit. Tunes like the opener "Coax," "Chronos," and "I-10" show the direction jazz seems to be heading; they inject a significant art rock/indie sound into the folds of jazz structure and instrumentation. My only caveat is that--despite the fact that Parks/Penman/Harland are purveyors of this new sound and lock in to a groove on nearly every song--I can't help but feel that Joshua Redman sounds slightly like an outsider amongst this innovative rhythm section. But as a whole this record stands out as bold statement from four 21st-century jazzmen at the top of their game, highly recommended.
