Birmingham, AL

Dorman's concerto exposed a side of Redman his fans rarely hear. The work is rife with intricately patterned rhythms, gripping intensity, and scales and melodies that travel around the orchestra. Shades of Bernstein give it bounce, sweep, and occasionally conflict. Redman, on soprano saxophone, was brilliant, ferreting out the work's unabashed dissonance, unafraid of its frantic intensity. He played like a veteran of hundreds of orchestral solos, hardly like a first-timer.
