Beyond is a 2000 studio album by American jazz saxophonist Joshua Redman released through Warner Bros. Records.[2]


On Beyond, Joshua Redman unveils ten originals that are both compelling in their complexity (including odd time signatures and polymetric structures) and alluring in their unadorned beauty (from catchy grooves to indelible melodies). His quartet delivers upbeat tunes that burst with dynamics, gently swinging numbers with reflective interludes, and lyrical gems teeming with passion.

"Just as always, the music here is performed with honest expression," Redman notes. "I'm not deliberately trying to write material that's difficult to play.... There's a balance between complexity and simplicity, between formal sophistication and emotional directness."[3]
