Reggie Quinerly

Reggie Quinerly started playing drums at age 8 after hearing Lester Grant playing at the church Quinerly attended with his family. “Many people, including myself, come to jazz through church, with the latter helping to shape the way we hear and play the former. In my mind, he was a jazz drummer first,” Quinerly says of Grant, with whom he studied for a year. “Much later I discovered he had been a top session drummer in the '50s for many traveling blues and jazz acts, which explained why the way he played wasn't necessarily from the gospel tradition. It wasn't shoutin' music. Sitting at his side, I developed my sensibility for hearing the drums a little bit differently. It was definitely more low-key.”
