Nonesuch Records releases saxophonist Joshua Redman’s Walking Shadows on May 7, 2013
The album, comprising 12 ballads, is Redman’s first recording to include an orchestral ensemble, which plays on many of the tracks. It was produced by Redman’s friend and frequent collaborator Brad Mehldau.
The record's core ensemble is a quartet featuring Mehldau, Larry Grenadier, and Brian Blade–all frequent collaborators of Redman’s over the years.
Dan Coleman conducts on the orchestral tracks. Walking Shadows includes original tunes from both Redman and Mehldau along with works by a wide range of composers such as John Mayer and Pino Palladino, Kern and Hammerstein, and Lennon and McCartney. Orchestral arrangements are by Mehldau, Coleman, and composer Patrick Zimmerli.

Walking Shadows is now available to pre-order in the Nonesuch Store with an instant download of the Redman-penned album track “Final Hour,” which you can preview below, and a download of the complete album available starting release day.
