Dewey Redman
Birth: May 17, 1931
Tarrant County
Texas, USA
Death: Sep. 2, 2006
Brooklyn
Kings County (Brooklyn)
New York, USA

Saxophonist. He is remembered as one of several accomplished jazz musicians who all grew up in the same Fort Worth neighborhood, including Clarinetist John Carter and the future "King Curtis" Ousley. Redman planned a career as a high school band teacher, but after attending two colleges and attaining one degree, plus a stint in the Army during the Korean War, he left for California to pursue a music career, eventually landing in New York where he caught on with Coleman's avant-garde band. Redman played with Keith Jarrett's American Quartet as well as Charlie Haden and Pat Metheny, but is best known for his collaborations with Ornette Coleman. He was the subject of a 2001 Canadian documentary film, "Dewey Time". (bio by: Elizabeth Reed)
