Presented by the Chan Centre

Joshua Redman’s new Still Dreaming project works on a number of different levels. At the surface, it’s a musical continuation of his saxophonist father Dewey Redman’s Old and New Dreams. That group itself was an extrapolation of the groundbreaking Ornette Coleman quintet of the late 60s and was made up of Coleman alumni including Don Cherry, Charlie Haden and Ed Blackwell besides Dewey Redman himself. Of course, there are other historic and stylistic parallels between the two Dream bands besides the pivot from father to son. This pre-concert talk will explore and elucidate those and the generational shifts between Dewey and Joshua Redman both musical and personal.

Nou Dadoun is a music radio host and journalist with interests in creative music, jazz, experimental and world musics, music and related social history, South African jazz, women in jazz, jazz in civil rights and social issues, and multi-disciplinary arts in general. He has a Ph.D, in Computer Science from UBC and works as a senior software engineer in research and development of computer security technologies.
