About

“A solid, thoughtfully-programmed showcase for one of the most capable and encyclopedic of modern saxophone stylists. Mr. Redman has a warmly commanding sound and a broad idiomatic range, from ballad lyricism to bebop chord changes to modal playing to free-form. The news here is his growth as a composer and his ability to focus the energies of a band sparked by the great Ed Blackwell on drums.”

So wrote the New York Times in 1983 of Dewey Redman’s “The Struggle Continues”, a disc that followed powerful Redman performances on ECM with Keith Jarrett’s ‘American Quartet’ and the Old and New Dreams band. Redman’s quartet repertoire, largely written by the leader, is capped by a tune from another great saxophonist: “Dewey Square” by Charlie Parker. Recorded in 1982, and never before released on CD.
