Editorial Reviews

Product Description

With spirited playing reminiscent of his classic self-titled debut and with a new quartet, this new release is a step into the future for the young leading light in jazz sax. [Note: This product is an authorized CD-R and is manufactured on demand]

Amazon.com

In the early years of his career, saxophonist Joshua Redman at times seemed burdened by expectations raised by record-label hype he knew was only partly justified. Beyond marks his emergence as a fully mature artist. The album includes some of Redman's strongest playing--the gorgeous ballad "Neverend," the slow-building tenor exchange with longtime friend Mark Turner on "Leap of Faith," the tongue-in-cheek grave dance on "Last Rites of Rock 'n' Roll." It also includes some of his most ambitious writing--the 13/4 time signature on "Courage," the 9/4 "Lopsided Lullaby," the 10/4 "Suspended Emanations." Redman's quartet with pianist Aaron Goldberg, bassist Reuben Rogers, and drummer Gregory Hutchinson displays the immediate, organic swing of a real touring band. One complaint, however: at 73 minutes, the album is two or three tracks too long. Whatever happened to the idea of saving a few choice outtakes for the inevitable career rediscovery 30 years from now? --Rick Mitchell

I have to agree with the great jazz writer Gary Giddins when he says that no player of this generation has captured the 'body and soul' of Coltrane like Josh Redman. Yet, Redman has a style that's uniquely his own. 'Beyond' is a superd record - and one which gets better with each listening. The sweetness of his tone is a delight. He seems to combine dazzlingly fluid improvisation with starkly simple melodies. His playing is always pushing the envelope, yet always rooted in raw blues. Although it is a studio album, 'Beyond' has all of the immediacy of live performance. Throughout, the backing band is sensitive, and supremely talented. Aaran Goldberg is one of the best, blusiest pianists I have heard recently. Some highlights....it would be no exaggeration to say that 'Neverend' is one of the most gorgeous ballads I have ever heard - and not just from Josh Redman! The tenor duet with Mark Truner on 'Leap of Faith' is stunning. After a smoldering eastern-flavoured improvisation by the two saxophones, the band kicks in, and this track just swings! 'Twilight...and beyond' is a masterpiece. Taking the form of a suite, this one shows the band in perfect harmony - there is a phrase Redman plays just before the piano solo which is so gut-wrenchingly brilliant it blows me away...only to be followed by a sparkling solo by Goldberg! I wholeheartedly recommend this album to any jazz fan...it's a treat! I am definitely looking forward to seeing Redman live next month!

Hi guys! Since the fact that I'm italian, I'm sure you'll close an eye, or both, about the mistakes that necessarily will occur to me. I own the entire discography of this fantastic sax player, and when I last heard him play here in Rome, during summer '98, I realized of the huge potential that he really got. An absolutely stunning experience, listen to him alive, for those that still haven't done such thing, is something hard to explain. Well I said enough! The new album, is the perfect soundstage to this artist. It shows, one more time, that Joshua's tecnique, is continuosly growing up, without that self-celebration that sometimes other artists are showing after a number of recordings. This new album set a new standard in "young jazz" quality, showing that not only the "old lions" makes good recordings. The artistic rate, as well the sound quality, are at the highest level, and this, to me as an audiophile and music lover, is something I love to find. In shorts: highly recomended!

The Cd came very quickly and is brand new and is great!!

I would like to write a review though.
First of all, I am a jazz guitar player singer ( Pat Martino- Joe Diorio- jazz guitar player -I like Steve Khan as well)-- But i have listened and incorporated anything that strikes my ear and musical sensibilities --whatever-- from Louis Armstrong and Bix Beiderbecke- from the 1920's to all of the modern guys-- with some special loves for 50's and 60's jazz and Blue Note,--- and Latin Jazz and it's players. and-- I also like the modern players too!--- jazz is in good hands today- -therefore I have always incorporated the styles attitudes, music, and everything else from my listening as well..

Joshua Redman and Eric Alexander came out at the same time--When they had the Monk competition- for best new jazz star-- in the very late 1980's- early 1990 or 1991,-- Joshua Redman came in first and Eric Alexander came in second.. Eric Alexander became a great great player and one who I have very much appreciated from his George Coleman approach and everything else-He Rocks- with the correct feeling, imagery, musicality, signature licks -whatever--and he has been for a very long time a --personaL FAVE!!!!!!-- and he keeps getting better-- and I love his entourage of players!!!!! --The One for All guys-ALL OF THEM_Jim Rotondi, Steve Davis, Joe Farnsworth, Harold Mabern--John Webber--etc-etc. -David Hazeltine-Peter Washington, --etc. etc. -

HOWEVER -- I have overlooked ---Joshua Redman!!!!
First of all-- I will not ever make that mistake again!!!!!!! He is as bad as can be!!!!!!!-- If you like--and I do,- monster jazz fingering, played from positioning, with an amazing sense of musicality -all ready to go-on every bit of your music!!, you will LOVE this CD!!!

mr. redman gives us an outstanding jazz session on this album. the first three tracks ("courage," "belonging," and "neverend")draw us into a solid neo-bop atmosphere. mr. redman has obvioiusly grasped the lessons of the masters. one hears the echoes of sonny rollins, dexter gordon, and hank mobley as mr. redman weaves and dances through these songs. all the while, though, mr. redman continues to give us his own voice. he swings and sings throughout the album with high energy. the album really hits it stride on the lengthier selections in the middle ("leap of faith," "balance" and "twilight"). here we get to hear mr. redman stretch out and never meander, never lose focus as he developes his themes with style and grace. moreover, his support really shines through. aaron goldberg is a find on piano. just dig his soloes and comping throughout, you'll want to find more by him. also, hearing mr. redman and mark turner together is a real treat ("leap of faith"). finally, mr. redman shows his mastery of all the major saxes. his work on alto and soprano throughout are outstanding. the only gripe is that i wish he would dabble with some of the adventuresome spirit of his father, dewey redman. son joshua obviously has the ability to explore, it'd be nice to hear the results.
