Momentum Space is an album by American jazz saxophonist Dewey Redman, pianist Cecil Taylor and drummer Elvin Jones featuring performances recorded in 1998 and released on the Verve label.[1]


The Allmusic review by Scott Yanow awarded the album 3 stars stating "The music is unpredictable yet not all that unique or colorful and one's expectations for a truly classic affair are not quite reached. This is worth listening to, but is not essential except as a historical curiosity".[2]
