Kim Reith

”BAIL!” is my first album, recorded in late 1999 to document my compositions and my ensemble work with San Diego bassist Bruce Grafrath. Subsequently, I collaborated with Bronx-born Swiss resident Edmund J. Wood on a series of experimental open improvisations, featuring Edmund on fretless bass and implied-time drum loops and me on hollow-body electric guitar. Unfortunately, the world lost a great creative soul when Edmund died in March, 2002. My most recent creative cohorts are LA-based musicians Dan Krimm, electric bassist, and Steve Sykes, with whom I've worked on trio interpretations of my compositions. I also do quite a bit of solo jazz guitar performance in the LA area, mainly playing chord-melody style jazz standards, as well as some of my own pieces conducive to solo performance.
