CD review: Reggie Washington – Vintage New Acoustic 2018: Video

Originally from New York, Reggie Washington is one of Europe’s busiest musicians. He was a key participant in the Modern Jazz revolution of the 80’s and 90’s and his list of credits include touring, recording and performing with musicians such as Steve Coleman, Branford Marsalis, Roy Hargrove, Chico Hamilton, Oliver Lake, Cassandra Wilson and Lester Bowie.

In addition to his work as a side-man Reggie is also well known as a leader having produced five CDs under his own name including this coming release.

Bobby Sparks list of credits reads like a who’s who of jazz including Lalah Hathaway, Roy Hargrove, Al Jarreau, Les McCann and Nicolas Payton to name a few and is currently working with Snarky Puppy and Liz Wright. Bobby and Reggie go back a long way having performed together in Roy Hargrove’s RH Factor.

Fabrice Alleman is considered to be one of the best soprano and tenor sax players in Europe but is also known for his talents on the clarinet. Rounding out the band is New York based drummer E.J Strickland who needs no introduction to European audiences having recently concluded an extensive tour with his quintet hitting almost all the major European jazz hotspots.
