The Reese Project (TRP), a compelling, mesmerizing quartet of masterful musicians, performs real jazz, including standards & their own originals. They have created a new jazz sound: East Coast Cool. They're appealing to see & hear (listen for Tom's trademark Yeah!) and have played to sold out venues & multiple standing ovations. The unique instrumentation of the group & their outside of the box approach has critics raving with their fresh approach to traditional jazz. A must see, The Reese Project will leave you wanting more & more East Coast Cool.
Tom Reese (flute), writes most of the band's material. In performance, his highly-charged, soaring flute lines carve new sounds out of traditional forms. Laurie Haines Reese (cello), adds a unique flavor to the band with the electric cello. Her shredding sound and acoustic bass lines compliment the creative edge in the original works as well as the standards
