Saxophonist Bob Reynolds has made a name for himself in the bands of singer-songwriters Jonah Smith and Nelly McKay, and he'll spend 2007 on the road with John Mayer. Reynolds also has a new album out called Can't Wait For Perfect on the Fresh Sound New Talent label. The CD is getting strong reviews from folks like Michael Brecker and Joshua Redman.
I love jazz because it swings.
I was first exposed to jazz in Houston.
I met Joe LoCascio and Bob Henschen.
The best show I ever attended was Pat Martino.
The first jazz record I bought was Time Out by the Dave Brubeck Quartet.
My advice to new listeners is to relax on 2 and 4 beats.
