Scott Reeves Jazz Orchestra: Featuring Vocalist Carolyn Leonhart
October 3 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm
Downbeat Magazine: “Reeves arrives at his sound – modern metric ideas, sweetly stacked harmonies that move in surprising directions, atypical musical alliances – by utilizing the full scope of his playing experience.”
London Jazz News: “His new release, Without a Trace, contains originals and standards, colourfully orchestrated, with an intimate, club-like ambience. These pieces really are ‘composed’…there is always a feeling of forward travel.”
Jazz Times: “Scott Reeves Jazz Orchestra is a wonder…hot compositions…a sizzling band…an assemblage of brilliant artists…the music is exciting, even thrilling.”
All About Jazz: “Reeves is a resourceful writer with…a keen ear for melody, harmony and counterpoint, his arrangements scrupulously burnished and invariably engaging.”
]Personnel for this engagement includes vocalist Carolyn Leonhart, saxophonists Vito Chiavuzzo, Jay Brandford, Rob Middleton, Tom Christiansen & Terry Goss, trumpeters Seneca Black, Freddie Hendrix, Stuart Mack, trombonists Matt McDonald, Jason Jackson, Matt Haviland & Jennifer Wharton, along with Jim Ridl on piano, Aidan O’Donnell on bass, and Andy Watson on drums.
