Bob Reynolds

Saxophonist Bob Reynolds’ 2006 release, Can't Wait For Perfect, was voted “Best Debut” in the Village Voice’s 2006 Jazz Poll, and called “Some of the freshest, most compelling, and most soulful music I have heard recently” by saxophone star Joshua Redman.

Incorporating funk, rock, and soul touches, without losing the essential swing and driving intensity of jazz, Reynolds’ strength lies in his talent for creating music that is both intricate and accessible. His combination of influences as diverse as John Coltrane, James Brown, and Radiohead, yield music that is focused, energetic, and captivating.
