The Moss Arts Center at Virginia Tech presents "A MoodSwing Reunion" performing on Tuesday, September 27, 2022.

Celebrated tenor saxophonist and composer Joshua Redman introduced his first permanent band with his 1994 album, MoodSwing, an astonishing collection by precociously talented musicians who would rapidly establish themselves as creative beacons. After years of individual triumphs, the original group reunited in 2020 on RoundAgain with Redman, pianist Brad Mehldau, bassist Christian McBride, and drummer Brian Blade, for an unforgettable performance of new material alongside signature work.

"When I say this is a super group in jazz, I mean, this is a super group. This is the royalty of instrumental musicians; you can't really get much higher than these guys." — Jamie Cullum, BBC Radio 2

Often lauded for his ability to perceive and develop prodigious talent early on, Redman formed his first permanent quartet as a bandleader in 1994, which resulted in his seminal work, MoodSwing. As it turned out, the foursome was only together for a year and a half. These musicians have gone on to become some of the most illustrious and influential musicians and bandleaders in modern jazz, recently reuniting for the newly released RoundAgain.

Adults tickets range from $20.00-$45.00 depending on seat location and tickets for students with ID and youth ages 18 & under are $10.00.
