CHARLOTTE, N.C. - EntSun -- JazzArts Charlotte is thrilled to bring celebrated saxophonist Joshua Redman to the Queen City to launch Season 19 of its highly acclaimed monthly series – The JAZZ ROOM  – on October 6-7 at The Booth Playhouse.  Redman is one of the most acclaimed and charismatic jazz artists to have emerged in the 1990's. The son of legendary saxophonist Dewey Redman, he has been nominated for 8 Grammy Awards and performed with legends across multiple genres including Herbie Hancock, B.B. King, Yo Yo Ma, The Rolling Stones, and Quincy Jones.

Joshua Redman will be featuring the premiere of his all-star quartet with Aaron Parks, Joe Sanders and Brian and performing music from his new Blue Note Records debut album Where Are We, featuring vocalist Gabrielle Cavassa.

"These performances mark so many firsts. We are thrilled that Charlotte is one of the few cities on Redman's tour and are just as excited as our audience to hear his first collaboration with Cavassa and his all-star quartet," said JazzArts President and CEO Lonnie Davis. "We continue to be blown away by our audiences and the demand for tickets, so we highly recommend getting tickets early for what will be an amazing performance to launch Season 19."
