The environs of Stanford University clearly agree with tenor saxophonist and composer Joshua Redman. An alumnus of its summer jazz camp and a former faculty artist at its Jazz Workshop, Redman spent the winter quarter of 2019 as the Mohr Visiting Artist in Stanford’s Department of Music. Now he’s returning to the university’s northern California campus as a visiting artist—this time for a full academic year.
Redman will spend the first two quarters of 2019-20 teaching master classes, coaching the university’s jazz combos, and guest lecturing, as well as performing with the Stanford Jazz Orchestra. During the spring quarter, he’ll be teaching two levels of improvisation courses.
