The Guardian
And the chimingly catchy Mehldau rocker Old West brings out the best of Redman’s terse, rhythmically astute lyricism on soprano, and the composer’s ability to stray into the distance and find his way home by roundabout routes. […]

Financial Times
A sumptuous ballad reading of “The Nearness of You” unfolds for over 15 minutes without losing its grip, and even the brisk-and-breezy bebop of “Ornithology” twists and turns to keep you engaged. […]

Redman keeps his cool and his smoky timbre at all times, that buttery sound soaked in the tradition but contemporary enough to keep him in the real world. […]
