From jazz saxophonist Joshua Redman’s 1994 CD, MoodSwing.

Personnel:
Joshua Redman – tenor saxophone, soprano saxophone
Brad Mehldau – piano
Christian McBride – bass
Brian Blade – drums

Lorraine Feather, the daughter of noted jazz critic Leonard Feather, is a singer-songwriter noted for her clever lyrics and convoluted wordplay in her music. “I know the Way to Brooklyn” is from her 2005 CD Dooji Wooji.
