Bill McHenry, Jon Irabagon, Sonny Rollins himself. . . the local jazz community has been talking about tenor trios lately. Here comes one of the best, led by a dude who gets more lyrical and fierce with each passing year. Slice his Compasstouring band in half and you have the agile outfit that will take the stage. Bassist Matt Penman and drummer Greg Hutchinson are all about pliability, but they're also expert at bolstering skyscrapers. Redman, well, he's expert at leaping over them with a single bound.
