"Dewey Redman’s biography in the “Biographical Encyclopedia of Jazz”, like the other entries, ends with a list of recordings. The book was published in 1999 and yet the last CD listed for Redman is: P. Delano. Recorded but never released, it now crosses the millennial line as a document of import, with no need to apologize for when it was taped, and a posthumous tribute to Redman (named “For Dewey” by Delano) that includes Dewey’s instrumental voice.
I was asked to write the notes for his first CD in ‘93. Impressed by his performance alongside some of the Apple’s elite—Gary Bartz, Michael Brecker and Lewis Nash— I was even more taken with the maturity of his excellent compositions, having heretofore not been exposed to that side of him.
Peter continued to fulfill his great promise with his ‘94 release, “Bite of the Apple”.
What is now “For Dewey” was to be his third CD. It didn’t make it to the public because Peter began to matriculate at Columbia University. He wasn’t available to tour “in support” (as they say) of his recordings and labels want their artists to be visible. “For Dewey” was yet another forward step. The originals reflect a still-growing Peter, as do his interpretations of the three standards. Redman is a presence on three of the five originals and there is magic in the interaction of the two principals.
