Smalls Showcase: Scott Reeves Jazz Orchestra

The Scott Reeves Jazz Orchestra celebrates the release of their 2nd CD, "Without a Trace" 

Scott's writing has been described by All About Jazz as "varied and substantial, ranging from hard bop and Latin oriented themes...to French impressionist influences. His arrangements are restless, full of color, and provide ample solo space...amidst variable underpinnings."

Featuring Grammy-awarding winning saxophonist Steve Wilson, the band also includes saxophonists Vito Chiavuzzo, Tim Armacost, Rob Middleton & Terry Goss, trumpeters Nathan Eklund, Chris Pasin, Chris Rogers & Andy Gravish, trombonists Matt McDonald, Pete McGuiness, Matt Haviland & Max Seigel, along with Jim Ridl on piano, Bill Moring on bass and Scott Neumann on drums.

"Without a Trace," as well as as the  previous SRJO release "Portraits and Places" can be purchased HERE
