Blade: A MoodSwing Reunion

Symphony Hall

Symphony Hall, Boston, MA

When jazz titans Joshua Redman, Brad Mehldau, Christian McBride, and Brian Blade released the landmark MoodSwing album during their mid-20s, each band member was widely considered a “future star” of jazz. They have met those lofty expectations and then some, each of them now a worldwide star with remarkably diverse trajectories as players, composers, and bandleaders. Now, nearly three decades later, they’re reuniting as a supergroup quartet to explore the evocative compositions and relatable musical approach that made MoodSwing a rare, instant hit with both hardcore jazz fans and casual listeners. The concert includes music from RoundAgain, the group’s first recording since MoodSwing with new songs composed by Redman, Mehldau, McBride, and Blade.
