Reuben Radding

Reuben Radding was born in Washington DC to a family of classical musicians, and relocated to New York City in 1988 where he studied contrabass with Mark Dresser and quickly became a busy stalwart of the Downtown scene. His powerful sound and sensitive listening has contributed to countless ensembles ranging from Jazz, to Classical, as well as ethnic genres, and he has been featured on over 30 recordings on labels such as Leo Records, AUM Fidelity, Tzadik, and Knitting Factory Works.

His current projects include his trio with vibraphonist Matt Moran, and clarinetist Oscar Noriega, duo projects with pianist Ursel Schlicht, saxophonist Jack Wright, and multi-instrumentalist Daniel Carter, a trio with Wright and hyperpianist Denman Maroney, and an improvised chamber trio with Bay Area violist Tara Flandreau and North Carolina oboe/English horn player Carrie Shull
