What I reach for first when I play is sound. Technique maybe, but there is technique in sound.— Dewey Redman
The most lavish Dewey Redman quotes to get the best of your day
Maybe not as an idol, but I have influenced some people, including my son Joshua. So that feels good. Wherever I play musicians come to meet me, that is a great compliment to me. I am honored.
I like to think of myself as an original.
I have my own sound. That's not easy to come by, I worked on it for many years. But I like to think that I sound like Dewey Redman
The music should be first, not the ego or the personality or the style.
In my world, the first thing I reach for is the sound.
Technique is Ok, but if you got the technique and I got a good sound, I'll beat you every time. You can play a thousand notes and I can play one note and wipe you out. What I reach for is ... a sound.
