State of Emergency

Leader

Label: 482 Music

Release Date: 09/18/2012

Joshua Bruneau (trumpet) Jonathan Barber (drums) Rick Germanson (piano) Nat Reeves (bass)
From its classic sound and eclectic roster of composers and tunes to the vintage design of its cover, Nat Reeves’ album State of Emergency! clearly embraces jazz archetypes. This fine bassist’s pedigree explains his reverence for the past. Reeves was mentored by Jackie McLean and has played with musicians ranging from Jimmy Cobb to Sting. As for the leader, Reeves’ solo on Ron Carter’s “Little Waltz” is virtuosic and humorous, his bass singing delightfully.Excerpt from The New York City Jazz Record (May 2013) album review written by Terrell Holmes
