Product Notes

The bassist extraordinaire Reggie Washington will release his second CD entitled "FREEDOM" in Spring 2012 on the Jammin'colorS label. Reggie is a bassist of rare sobriety and efficacity. His savant bass lines are legible and they always serve the music. He has a certain form of exigence and great musical taste. His list of collaborations is infinite in addition to being a participant in the revolution of Modern Jazz during the 90's. In 2005, he stepped out as a leader for the first time in his career with "A Lot of Love, LIVE !", on the Jammin'colorS label. The CD has received stellar reviews from journalists and colleagues worldwide in the music business. It is being played on U.S.A. and European radio to touch a wider audience. "My music represents the cutting edge of jazz today. It's a healthy musical mix paying hommage to our forefathers and exploring our craft by journeying down new roads to help pave the way for the future." says Reggie. For him, the music must evolve and he feels he's among the select group of musicians capable and dedicated to keeping MUSIC alive and strong. Reggie has toured with his bands through Europe and the U.S.A to very receptive and appreciative audiences. Bass Player magazine presented Reggie in it's August 2007 issue entitled "The Eternal Internal" by journalist Bill Milkowski. In 2008, Reggie was among the winners of the Rising Stars electric bassist category in DownBeat magazine's International Critics Poll.
