JOSHUA REDMAN & BRAD MEHLDAU Nearness Limited Vinyl 2LP Set + Download

Nonesuch Records releases saxophonist Joshua Redman and pianist Brad Mehldau’s Nearness, the long-time friends’ and collaborators’ first duo album. Nearness is a selection of duets recorded live during their recent European tour - Redman and Mehldau perform together at the EFG London Jazz Festival on November 12. Brad Mehldau first came to prominence as a member Joshua Redman’s quartet in the 1990s before becoming a bandleader himself. The pair first reunited in 2010 when Redman was featured on Mehldau’s album Highway Rider. In 2013, Mehldau was featured as a performer and producer on Redman’s Walking Shadows. “It’s like one of those friendships where you don't see someone for a long stretch and then you fall right back where you left off,” Mehldau told the Ottawa Citizen when he and Redman performed at the city’s jazz festival in 2011. According to the Citizen's Peter Hum, these two friends are ‘among the most potent and influential jazz instrumentalists of their generation, and what Mehldau calls ‘picking up’ is in fact world-class improvising before rapt audiences.’
