The Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts of Miami-Dade County (@arshtcenter) continues its 11th season of internationally acclaimed JAZZ ROOTS concerts with JOSHUA REDMAN QUARTET on Friday, January 18, 2019 in the John S. and James L.

This bold and diverse jazz ensemble includes the master talents of Joshua Redman on saxophone, Aaron Goldberg on piano, Ben Williams on bass and Miami native, Obed Calvaire on drums.
Tickets range from $45 – $125* and can be purchased by phone at (305) 949-6722, online at www.arshtcenter.org or in person at the Arsht Center Box Office, located at 1300 Biscayne Blvd.
“We are proud and thrilled to present this charismatic American artist bringing our audiences vital sounds from the front lines of jazz,” said Liz Wallace, Arsht Center vice president of programming.
“You simply can’t miss a chance to hear Joshua Redman. He possesses one of jazz’s most distinctive and innovative voices, and yet deeply rooted in the tradition. We have been anxious to include Joshua Redman in the Jazz Roots series, and I am thrilled that he will be here.” says Shelly Berg, JAZZ ROOTS Artistic Advisor.
In the past quarter century, JOSHUA REDMAN has redefined the jazz quartet genre with his singular sound and boundless creativity. “The heart of his success lies in the forthright connection he makes with an audience,” says The New York Times. His latest album, Still Dreaming, was recently nominated for
a Grammy Award for Best Jazz Instrumental Album! The album was inspired by the band Old and New Dreams, of which Joshua Redman’s father Dewey Redman was a member. That band had an all-star lineup of Ornette Coleman collaborators: Don Cherry, Charlie Haden, and Ed Blackwell. Still
Dreaming features six new compositions by the new band plus one tune by Haden, one by Coleman.
The JAZZ ROOTS education program is presented by Baldwin Richardson Foods, and made possible in part by Wells Fargo, Green Family Foundation, Quint Family Foundation, Citizens Interested in Arts, and Encore Circle members.
