Description:

Still Dreaming—featuring the combined talents of saxophonist Joshua Redman, trumpeter Ron Miles, bassist Scott Colley, and drummer Brian Blade—is a not so subtle reference to the renowned Old and New Dreams ensemble—a “supergroup” composed of former Ornette Coleman sidemen Dewey Redman (Josh’s father), Charlie Haden and Ed Blackwell. The spirit of Ornette Coleman’s revolutionary harmolodic concepts are suffused throughout Still Dreamin’s original compositions and adapted as a springboard to open-ended musical conversations between these four master improvisers. The result is a reinvigorated form of jazz expression filtered through the perspective of a younger generation and yielding a sound relevant for today.
