Passage of Time is a 2001 album by jazz saxophonist Joshua Redman.


In this album, Joshua Redman strings together 8 different original compositions into a continuous piece for the first time, with pianist Aaron Goldberg, bassist Reuben Rogers, and drummer Gregory Hutchinson (part of Redman's Quartet) as partners in this project.

Redman states, "One of my goals as a jazz musician is to construct a meaningful narrative. Not a literal or analytical narrative, but an emotional narrative of sound. That's how I would describe Passage Of Time: a piece of music that says something from start to finish. It tells a story. It has themes and motifs that become topics for group discussion. It's a long story, consisting of smaller ones, discovered and articulated during the music-making process. The band speaks through conversations, and our dialogues give the music feeling, purpose and direction."[2]
