Joshua Redman Leads James Farm To Beantown Jazz Festival12:42

This article is more than 9 years old.

In the world of jazz, it's not every day that a new band comes along — especially a band that includes a player like Joshua Redman.

But the great saxophone player has teamed up with pianist Aaraon Parks, and along with bass player Matt Penman and drummer Eric Harland, they call themselves James Farm.

James Farm embraces a mix of influences — from rock, soul, blues, even electronica. At its heart, though, the band is steeped in the traditions of jazz improvisation. James Farm released its first self-titled album earlier this year and will play at the Beantown Jazz Festival Friday.


  • Joshua Redman, saxophone
