Eric Reed

When someone with such prodigious chops as Eric Reed sits down at the piano you know you are in for a rewarding listening experience. E-Bop is no exception with Eric offering a diverse collection of originals and standards imbued with great imagination. A veteran of the Wynton Marsalis septet, Eric also occupied the piano bench in the Lincoln Center Jazz Orchestra. With masterful insight Eric reinvents tunes by Elmo Hope and Thelonious Monk and, along with trumpeter Marcus Printup and sax man Walter Blanding Jr., delivers his own original works with an authority only a composer can command. E-Bop presents compelling proof that Eric Reed is among the most talented keyboard artists in jazz today.

Eric Reed- piano; Marcus Printup- trumpet; Walter Blanding Jr- saxophone; Rodney Whittaker- bass; Rodney Green- drums.

Tracks: Ain't Nothing Wrong With That; Bouncin' With Boo Boo; E-Bop; Little Girls; Grew-vy; Ornate; La Berthe; Perugian Rain; Roller Coaster; Evidence/Think of One.
