Now's the Time: Joshua Redman
The modern-day jazz giant Joshua Redman last performed in Kansas City with the Bad Plus in 2016. (I reviewed the concert for The Kansas City Star.) The saxophonist was in equally fine form as a headliner of the Charlie Parker Jazz Festival in New York in 2017. (I reviewed the event at Plastic Sax.) Redman will be joined by pianist Aaron Goldberg, bassist Reuben Rogers and drummer Gregory Hutchinson at the Folly Theater on Thursday, April 11. The concert is one of more than 20 of the evening’s performances listed at The Kansas City Jazz Calendar.
