 ESPN.com: NFL - Redman might give Ravens stability at QB
The difference, though, this time around is that third-year veteran Chris Redman is apt to accomplish what Mitchell, Tony Banks and Elvis Grbac could not: Hold on to the starter's job for consecutive seasons.
Redman will not directly address the problems Grbac experienced, the lack of gumption teammates witnessed on a too-often basis, but he is obviously aware of the perception his predecessor evoked.
For much of his senior year, Redman was regarded as the equal of Chad Pennington for the top quarterback prospect in the draft.

Assuming that Redman actually said what he did, we don't understand what the big deal is regarding his statement and really think that he and Minister Farrakhan are in virtual agreement over the profitability of so-called conscious rap.
The interesting thing about the mini-controversy/confusion over Redman's comments is that Minister Farrakhan, in his address, told the artists that he was "not asking for a radical change" but that he was asking artists to "speak to the issues that enlighten".
Redman, however, intelligently took the discussion into another dimension by looking at the immediate consequences of moving immediately into a "positive" form of rap from a "negative" form of rap.

 Don Redman
Don Redman is considered the first jazz composer - arranger by many.
In short, he invented jazz writing for the big band, not only writing separate parts for reed and brass "choirs", leaving room for hot solos, but putting sections in opposition which solved the problems of the new style, thus showing everyone else how to do it.
In 1931 Redman aquired the William McKinneys Cotton Pickers and continued for some time to compose and arrange their material.

Ravens QB Chris Redman did what Colts QB Peyton Manning wanted to do, but Redman's fl high-top cleats won't cost him nearly as much as it would have Manning.

Redman, like Unitas, was a former Louisville quarterback and was counseled frequently by the former Colt great in recent years.

Redman's orchestra is great music with a good number of novelty numbers like Puddin' Head Jones, Watching The Knife and Fork Spoon, and Got The Jitters.
The principal vocalists for Redman's orchestra at this time were Harlan Lattimore and Chick Bullock who sometimes sound a bit reminscent of Bing Crosby, which isn't surpising considering that crooner's popularity.
Redman also sings a few numbers in his own singular half talking half singing style.

 The Don Redman Orchestra | Geneva 1946   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
Redman’s well—disciplined orchestra nimbly straddled the fence between two eras — swing and bop — and numbered in its ranks such acclaimed sidemen as Don Byas, Tyree Glenn, Quentin Jackson and a 25—year—old pianist named Billy Taylor.
There are eight charts by Redman (who takes no solos), two by Taylor (“Alexander’s Ragtime Band” and “Tea for Two,” both of which showcase his piano) and one by Elton Hill (“My Melancholy Baby,” on which Glenn is featured on vibes, as he is on Redman’s treatment of “Limehouse Blues”).
Don Redman, leader, alto sax; Bob Williams, Allan Jeffries, trumpet; Peanuts Holland, trumpet, vocals; Quentin Jackson, Jackie Carman, trombone; Tyree Glenn, trombone, vibes; Chauncey Houghton, Peter Clark, alto, baritone sax, clarinet; Don Byas, Ray Abrams, tenor sax; Billy Taylor, piano; Ted Sturgis, bass; Buford Oliver, drums; Inez Cavanaugh, vocals.

Don Redman left Fletcher Henderson's band in 1927 to take the position of Musical Director of an up-and-coming hot band out of Detroit, McKinney's Cotton Pickers.
For a while, Henderson was able to get by without Redman's brilliant work by "borrowing" arrangements from other bands, but by 1931 Fletcher hit his stride as a master arranger in his own right.
Henderson built on Redman's arranging methods and produced a series of charts that are still considered classics of big band writing.

With those recent problems still very much a question mark over Redman, it gives Boller a very real chance of extended playing time in his rookie season.

A lot of interesting names passed through the band during this era, including trumpeter Sidney DeParis, trombonist Quentin Jackson and singer Laurel Watson, and there is some pleasing music despite a fair amount of vocals.
The first CD in Classics' Redman series is the most essential.
