African Venus

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Campbell
By the time African Venus was recorded in 1992, Dewey Redman was combining the fire of his earlier playing with a gentler, melodic approach. On "Satin Doll," "Mr. Sandman," and "Take the 'A' Train," Redman glides along in a more traditional bop vein, while the title track and Ornette Coleman's "Turnaround" sound more like the fiery Redman of Look for the Black Star or Tarik. Joining Redman on this date are Charles Eubanks piano, Anthony Cox bass, Carl Allen drums, Danny Sadownick percussion, and Joshua Redman tenor saxophone, on three tracks. Not an essential disc, but far from a throwaway.
