It's Dewey Time
Today's post goes out to my good friend Matt Wilson. During my lessons with him in 2004, Matt talked extensively about his time playing and learning from tenor saxophonist Dewey Redman. Wilson's respect and affinity for Redman was quite evident and I personally learned a lot from Matt recalling his experiences.
Here's an excerpt from an informative documentary about Dewey Redman and his music:
And you can view this documentary in it's entirety here:
This is also a nice reminder that it's time for me to revisit the recordings that Dewey did with Keith Jarrett's American Quartet (and on related note - it's time to revisit Jarrett's other European Quartet recordings as well for that matter!)
