Joshua Redman and Brad Mehldau Stunning Duet Session in Saratoga Springs, NY
James Farm is a collaborative effort with Matt Penman, bass; Aaron Parks, piano; Eric Harland, drums. Says Redman," Everybody composes for the band. It's a unique group of musicians. We share a lot of the same musical values, but each of us is a very different, distinct musical personality. I think we're all very interested in songs. Song structure, and not just writing songs as vehicles for improvisation, but thinking about the songs as songs. As ends in and of themselves. But we're also completely committed to collective improvisation in the moment. There's a real chemistry that's developing. It will be interesting to see where it goes."
