Joshua Redman

It was about finding creative, original musicians. Musicians who are strong composers. Flexible, empathetic musicians, who are great individually but who also have a great sense for cooperation and collaboration, great listeners as well as great players.More Joshua Redman quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]

Each year, the reality is getting closer to the ideal of a collective.More Joshua Redman quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
