Review: Saxophonist Redman’s excellent new album marks a homecoming of sorts. Nearly 20 years have gone by since the last time this group performed together, and their rapport now sounds wiser and more self-assured. Featured here are seven original compositions by Redman, a straight-ahead collection of runic melodies ranging in style from jam-like funk to medium swing to soulful balladry. Although Redman is the leader, he gives ample solo space to his bandmates
