Review: Pianist Eric Reed is one of the most articulate and intelligent ambassadors of jazz performing today. Here the jazz listener receives the grace of perfectly conceived and delivered jazz piano trio & quartet music. Reed is a complete musical package with a graceful style and an encyclopedic mind.
