The 36-year-old Redman is a word man. "Language is an exciting thing to me," Redman said in an interview. "I am always running up against the limits of my own language. I am always searching for the right way to express things."

The Lakeland Ledger has a very interesting article that traces the careers of the Adderley Brothers, Cannonball and Nat as they left their native Florida to make jazz history:
