An all-star lineup takes the stage at the Greek to perform the futuristic, synth-heavy electronic music of elusive Nigerian artist William Onyeabor. Onyeabor self-released eight nearly impossible-to-find albums between 1978 and 1985 in Nigeria, but after becoming a born-again Christian turned his back on his work and refused to speak about it for nearly three decades. Last year, after a five-year odyssey to track down Onyeabor and secure his permission to release his music, the Luaka Bop label issued World Psychedelic Classics 5: Who Is William Onyeabor? The album was named one of Time magazine's top ten albums of the year and Pitchfork's Best Reissue of the Year 2013. Even now, after the album's enormous success, the artist's life story remains a mystery -- and he seems content to keep it that way. The show features David Byrne, Alexis Taylor (Hot Chip), Pat Mahoney (LCD Soundsystem), Kele Okereke (Bloc Party), the legendary Lijadu Sisters of Nigeria in their first live performance in 30 years, Money Mark, Joshua Redman and Sinkane. The evening begins with a DJ set by special guest Wooden Wisdom (Elijah Wood & Zach Cowie). Learn More

Redman was well on his game. The overall performance was a bit fatiguing as the music was largely open expression with little refrain/theme for the listener to connect to. He is a great free expressionist in the same line as Pharoah Sanders.

Joshua Redman is one of the most acclaimed and charismatic jazz artists to have emerged in recent times. Born in Berkeley, California, he is the son of legendary saxophonist Dewey Redman, A jazz wunderkind during his college days at Harvard, he opted out of law school to pursue jazz and along the way has become a prolific contributor to the art form.
Joshua Redman is known for being an adventurous musician. The New York Times notes that he is “adept at writing both lyrically and rhythmically, and knows when the twain should part, creating an episode of engaging storytelling on one tune, circling the head of the tune with just four or five notes immediately after.” Joshua Redman is a genius on the road to the ranks of saxophone legends Charlie Parker and John Coltrane, but creating a realm entirely his own along the way.
