Still Dreaming (feat. Ron Miles, Scott Colley & Brian Blade)
Still Dreaming immersed itself deeply in Coleman’s legacy, both directly and indirectly.
But it never felt recycled – in fact, it was consistently riveting.’ — Washington Post Saxophonist and composer Joshua Redman is joined by drummer Brian Blade, bassist Scott Colley, and trumpeter Ron Miles for Still Dreaming, an album inspired by his father Dewey Redman’s 1976–1987 band, Old and New Dreams. Along with the senior Redman, Old and New Dreams featured an all-star lineup of Ornette Coleman collaborators – cornetist Don Cherry, bassist Charlie Haden, and drummer Ed Blackwell – who continued pushing musical boundaries as they had with Coleman even after their former bandleader moved in a new direction. The Still Dreaming ensemble performed a series of critically praised international dates last year. The Columbus Dispatch said, ‘Whether exploring the limits of improvisation or establishing an emotional tone, the group… relied on a dialogue based on listening, respect, and generosity… Its emotional travel was the result of the intuition shared by all four musicians. That dialogue, after all, was at the center of Coleman’s innovations.’
