Eric Reed, one of the most important and popular pianists of his generation, leads his quartet in a 60th anniversary of the history-making recordings released in 1959. And, he has an incredible catalog to draw from like Miles Davis’ Kind of Blue, John Coltrane’s Giant Steps, Horace Silver’s Blowin’ the Blues Away, Dave Brubeck’s Time Out, Bill Evans’ Portrait in Jazz and Ornette Coleman’s The Shape of Jazz to Come to name a few that were recorded in that fateful year. Reed first rose to fame with the Wynton Marsalis and the Lincoln Center Jazz Orchestra and has worked with artists as varied as Jessye Norman, Quincy Jones, and Patti Labelle. All About Jazz says“Eric Reed has fully established himself in the forefront of jazz pianists.”
