Beyond by Joshua Redman
This week, I’m suggesting Beyond by tenor saxophonist Joshua Redman. Joshua Redman has released several albums in addition to Beyond and I’ll be the first to say that they are all amazing. But, I especially like this one because it really leaves the listener wanting more. Every time I hear this album, I wish there were more than just 10 songs. Perhaps it’s because Beyond has a certain blues-driven feel that I haven’t found often on other jazz albums. I’d say the best example of that unique sound is in my favorite track, Neverend. Check out this live performance of Neverend and look for Beyond soon on Amazon and iTunes.
