Reggie Quinerly

Quinerly grew up in a rich musical environment – one that nourished artists as stylistically diverse as pianists Jason Moran and Robert Glasper, drummers Sebastian Whittaker, Chris Dave and Eric Harland and guitarist Mike Moreno . They all attended Houston's High School of the Performing and Visual Arts, where the teachers, said Quinerly, were "incredibly devoted. They gave us a real head start." ​ After graduating high school he ventured to the East Coast, more specifically, the Mannes School of Music at New School University where he got to study with three great drummers: Jimmy Cobb, Lewis Nash, and Kenny Washington

The question is typically followed by a halting look, like, “Oh, yeah, I forgot, you only write about stuff from the 1940s and '50s." Believe it or not, I listen to a ton of cutting-edge new jazz. The problem ...

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
