Although New York City composer, trombonist & alto flugelhornist Scott Reeves has been writing for decades for groups such as the BMI Jazz Composers Workshop, the Dave Liebman Big Band, and groups in Japan and Italy, this is the debut recording with his own big band. Founded in 2008 and featuring top jazz artists, including saxophonists Steve Wilson & Tim Armacost, Reeves' writing draws on modern harmonic concepts, a judicious use of dissonance, wide-ranging forms, along with down-home unabashed swinging. His compositions have been described by All About Jazz as "restless, full of color," and from Zan Stewart of the New Jersey Star Ledger, "His music mirrors his aesthetic philosophy, which is also deep and reflective." •"Scott Reeves writes fresher, more meticulous, more challenging tunes than many well-known jazz composers." - Thomas Conrad, Jazz Times
