Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Tenor saxophonist Joshua Redman, the son of the magnificent but undervalued Dewey Redman, was touted as one of the young lions of jazz in the 1990s, spearheading a neo-bop revival upon the release of his 1992 debut. The acclaim was quickly followed by charges of hype, but on his second album, Wish, Redman proved worthy of the accolades. This is a surprisingly mature work for such a young player. Redman's soloing is assured, conversant with the blues, and filled with minor surprises. His exchange with guitarist Pat Metheny is superb, and the master rhythm section of Charlie Haden on bass and Billy Higgins on drums affords Redman plenty of rhythmic subtlety to apply his nuanced playing to. --John Swenson

5.0 out of 5 stars One of, if Not the Best Jazz Album of the 1990's September 16, 2004
Format:Audio CD
I became a Joshua Redman fanatic after hearing this album back in 1993 during my freshman year of college. Mind you, I had never previously heard his self-titled debut, nor any work from his superb, legendary sidemen of Metheny, Haden, and Higgins, so I entered this listening experience with no expectations. (Actually, I was kind of a jazz novice at the time and I was just snatching up anything of note.) I bought this album strictly off of the admonition of a glowing review from Jazztimes magazine and was so impressed that I began singing praises about Redman to anybody I came in contact with who expressed an interest in jazz.

Although in the presence of greatness with the aforementioned rhythm section, Redman holds his own and still manages to lead the way. Truth be told, Joshua pushes the veterans to keep up with him instead of the other way around, as his melodic "duels" (not duets) with Metheny attest. Haden and Higgins nail the time beautifully. Redman's tone, technique, and lyrical phrasings are all exquisite, but what I admire the most about this album is his expression of EMOTION, which is an attribute that is sorely missing in "post-bop, neo-jazz." After all, jazz is still "soul music" rooted in the blues.

Joshua was still meshing out his own identity in this his sophmore effort, so comparisons can be made with Rollins or Coltrane, which speaks more of his ambitious musings and wonderful technical displays than merely a critique of mimicry. By the time he carved his niche on his later efforts, however, the emotional sensitivity and improvisational excursions he exhibited here seemed to have dissipated, which is why "Wish" is still head and shoulders, his best effort thus far.

5.0 out of 5 stars Melodic Wonder May 1, 2000
Format:Audio CD
This CD is so melodic. Joshua's phrasing and development of his solos are always keeping you interested. Not to mention the very melodic originals. Also, Metheny and crew are really backing him up with 100% committment to the music at hand.

5.0 out of 5 stars This disc COOKS. October 3, 2002
Format:Audio CD
I have been a fan of Josh for a good six years now and have slowly been absorbing his albums. It has taken me a while, but I finally got to "Wish", his masterful sophomore effort. I'm listening to it presently and it is amazing. First of all, Josh has a gorgeous tone. Secondly, he's playing with a masterful rhythm section-among the best to ever inhabit a bandstand: Charlie Haden (from Ornette Coleman's famous 60's groups) and Billy Higgins (from a million other famous jazz recordings). Finally, throw in the great guitarist Pat Methany for good measure.
These four combine to create some simply beautiful music. Witness the lovely and restrained beginning of "Make Sure You're Sure" and the Clapton tune "Tears in Heaven". Just gorgeous. "Turnaround" and "Soul Dance" are both memorable softer tunes. Just when you might think this was a ballads album Josh throws in some great toe-tappers with "Deserving Many", "We had a Sister", and "Wish". Both live tracks end the disc on a positive, joyful note.
Highly recommended.

Excellent second album in Redman's series of six to complete ones library of Joshua Redman. However,for the first time listener,check out "Freedom In The Groove". It has better tunes(most written by Redman), and better performances all the way to the end track.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Must Own!! January 30, 2001
By dr. b.
Format:Audio CD
For a modern artist with a classic style you will definitely want to check out Joshua Redman. Listen for Pat Metheny. Jazz with an Afro-Latin twist. Extraordinary. It will make you Wish for more.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb Musicianship in this album December 31, 2000
Format:Audio CD
Redman and his rhythm section have a truly remarkable interplay throughput the album. Redman himself developes his ideas in a coherent and mature fashion. Metheny and Haden really mesh well, and this album is a definate buy for the post-bop lover.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bradford who? June 23, 1998

This is my favorite Joshua Redman CD - and I like them all. "Wish" and "Blues for Pat" are worth the price by themselves. Charlie Haden and Pat Methany are excellent.

5.0 out of 5 stars Oh My Gosh! I Must Be In Jazz Heaven!!! March 5, 2006
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This collection is infectious!! After playing it not-stop for months I still hear new notes, chords, and tones. The opening cut "Turnaround" draws you right into what will become a cd that will always remain on your changer. While all of the musicians are very accomplished, the pairing of Joshua Redman & Pat Metheny is a match made in jazz heaven! "Soul Dance" is very fine and subtly interwoven on various levels. "Whittlin" is red hot! Every cut is brilliant and stands on its own. You simply must experience Joshua Redman's astounding talent and musical depth. Beware! Only for those who can appreciate the sophisticated complexities of jazz! This cd is a good place to start.
