The continued maturation of saxist Joshua Redman — he’s developing an ever-more beguiling basic sound, a library of catchy originals, and an increasingly distinct identity — should be gratifying to any jazz fan. If Freedom in the Grooveoccasionally pushes the boundary dividing grand and grandstanding (”Invocation”), Redman’s audacity is part of his appeal.
