In 1994, saxophonist Joshua Redman (who was barely 25 years old at the time) had the idea of forming a new quartet and would join with three musicians from his generation whose talent was beginning to make serious headway in the small world of modern jazz (Brad Mehldau on piano, Christian McBride on double bass and Brian Blade on drums). The record they subsequently released, MoodSwing, was an instant hit and served as a catalyst for each of their careers, propelling them up amongst the rising stars of the young US scene.

After enjoying individual success, the four musicians decided to meet again 26 years later, in 2020, to record an album that would serve as a continuation of their last joint venture. RoundAgain was a pleasant surprise, devoid of any nostalgia or revivalist temptation. It did not simply pick up where the quartet left off 25 years ago, rather, it offered a new beginning - one enriched by the experience accumulated by each of the band members over their years apart. Their journey continues with the same spirit and energy in 2022, with the release of LongGone.

The tracks on this album all vary in form and mood, and the quartet develops a sound firmly anchored in a jazz aesthetic. Propelled by a rhythm section that boasts amazing organic fluidity, this album is just as rich and exciting as the last, and Joshua Redman demonstrates his stylistic palette throughout, flaunting a warm sonority, fluidity of phrasing and a consistent mastery of orchestral dynamics. Brad Mehldau, with his inimitable elegance, blends delightfully into the collective, cultivating a sound that remains accessible in spite of its sophistication. Achieving a synthesis between tradition and modernity that never sounds artificial, LongGone offers a remarkable glimpse of what 21st century jazz can be. © Stéphane Ollivier/Qobuz

Blue Note in 10 Albums

The most famous of all jazz labels had it all! Five-star artists, original repertoires, ingenious associate artistic directors, exceptional sound recording, sublime album covers, a variety of genres (Bebop, Hard Bop, Soul Jazz, Modal Jazz, Free Jazz)… The label was launched in 1939 by Francis Wolff and Alfred Lion, two Germans who had fled the Nazi regime, and had everything going for it. Qobuz has picked 10 key albums from its ample catalogue. Some of them are celebrated classics. Others are underrated marvels. But all of them played a vital role in shaping Blue Note as a label.

Ray Charles, a Stylist Under the Influence

A founding father of soul, whose career spanned half a century, Ray Charles cannot be reduced to a handful of famous hits. He is above all the master of the high-end musical crossover that makes an art of mixing genres, approaching one to better embrace the other. Ray Charles secularised gospel, enriched the blues, played jazz, sang country and approached rock'n'roll. Let's take a look back at his unique style based on the five listed here.

Chris Connor, a Forgotten Voice

What if she really was the greatest cool jazz singer of them all? Almost twelve years after she passed away, Chris Connor remains one of the most sensual voices of her generation. After all, there's more to life than Anita O'Day and June Christy...
