4.0 out of 5 stars Relax to Redman... 8 May 2002
Format:Audio CD
Being the first Joshua Redman album in my collection, I wasn't sure what to expect. However, my apprehension was unfounded. 'Mood Swing' is terrific. Redman himself is as talented a sax player as I've come across. Blending smooth grooves and extreme solos with effortless skill, his unmistakeable style is evident from the outset. Helped by an extremely tight (and talented) band (Brad Mehldau is particularly fine on piano), 'Mood Swing' is best listened to relaxing with a bottle of whatever, or to be relaxed. There aren't quite enough killer tracks on here for a perfect five stars, but it's great value nevertheless. Standouts include the hush-hush opener 'Sweet Sorrow', the aptly titled 'Mischief' and the superbly funky 'Headin' Home'. Highly recommended.

3.0 out of 5 stars Could have been better 30 July 2002
Format:Audio CD
A fine quartet with Redman on sax, Brad Mehldau on piano, Christian McBride on bass and Brian Blade on drums. The first track Sweet Sorrow sets the albums tone, its a mournful ballad nicely handled.
Chill and Rejoice are progressively more upbeat but the whole album is very laid back. On Rejoice Melhdau reminds me of the late Don Grolnick.
The pining Faith plays like a pop ballad.
Alone In The Morning is a bit sleazy for me.
Track 7 Dialogue gets a bit more daring as the band frees out with Coltranes influence shining through. The Oneness Of Two (In Three) has a main theme reminiscent of an earlier Coltrane offering.
Its a decent album with talented playing but probably lacks that bit of originality that would set it apart. Too much of it sounds like a jazz training manual and the pallette is a tad limited.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best at his very best! 1 Aug 2002
By Greg Randolph - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This recording in my opinion is the freshest and finest work that Joshua Redman has produced. Considering that the band make-up of Brad Mehldau, Christian McBride and Brian Blade are three of the baddest young jazz musicians today, they have also become major band leaders in their own right. I think this was the recording that set them all on their way. The songs vary from melodic to sonically intense. McBride and Blade blaze a rhythmic trail followed by the creative yet subtle piano stylings of Mehldau, all giving way to the superior improvisational skills of Redman. The songs seem almost lyrical in their expression. Whether you are a Joshua Redman fan, or someone who has never experienced his music before, this is the beginning (although he had two prior quality releases prior) of the spectacular career of one of the finest tenor sax players of these times...

5.0 out of 5 stars A Jazz All-Stars Quartet 5 July 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Joshua Redman, Brad Mehldau, Christian McBride and Brian Blade. Anyone who likes contemporary jazz should hear these four. Each song makes from this disc one of Redman's best. "Rejoice" and "Headin' Home" are, perhaps, great examples of Redman's creativity and unique improvisations. Four virtuosos playing together to make from Moodswing an example of good jazz.

5.0 out of 5 stars A new "kind OF Blue" 30 April 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Kind of Blue by Miles Davis is often referred to as the definitive jazz record.Of course,it can never be duplicated and any sort of comparison would be impossible.But musicians,critics and fans agree (which doesn't happen often)that Joshua Redman's self-composed "Moodswing" is one of the most significant recordings of the past five years.Joshua along with pianist Brad Mehldau,drummer Brian Blade and bassist Christian McBride demonstrate a strong reverence to the tradition of the music while continuing to expand its horizon.Not only is this an exceptional group, but each of these young players has carved out their own niche in JAZZ and are sure to endure!Exceptional recording!Miles would be proud! Give it a Listen!

5.0 out of 5 stars How easy it is to listen..without saying a word 12 July 2002
By Kevin Currie-Knight - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I've recently started re-listening to my jazz collection and, I must say, this CD has as much emotional impact today as it did when I first bought it in 1997. To musicians and non-musicians alike, Josh, Brian, Christian and Brad speak to the gut and command our attention.
A reviewer below compares the chemistry and achievment here to Miles' 'Kind of Blue' and I second that. That album, as with this one, is fully accesable to every music lover. That, as well as this, uses interesting and (harmonically) uncompounded tunes to get the 'point' across. That album, as well as this one, has SHARP chemistry. Every song is worth remembering.

5.0 out of 5 stars Channeling Prez and Hawk 10 Jan 2005
By R. J. Marsella - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Joshua Redman has a big tenor sound that reminds one of traditional tenor men like Lester Young, Coleman Hawkins , and Ben Webster much more than most of the other modern sax men. Some may see this as a negative thing but I don't. Redman is an inventive improviser and on this cd he is accompanied by a rhythm section that consists of some of the best talent there is. Brian Blades is such an inventive drummer and yet he can swing or set up a blues tune as well as anyone. Christian McBride's bass playing is phenomenal on every track. Brad Mehldau rounds out the group on piano and is as a fine an accompanist and soloist as there is out there. Of course Redman is the featured player here and his sound is incredible. Big tone very soulful and bluesy on several tracks. Overall this is an excellent ensemble recording by a quartet of leading jazz musicians that is well worth acquiring.
