Saxophonist Bob Reynolds’ release, Can’t Wait For Perfect, was voted “Best Debut” in the Village Voice’s 2006 Jazz Poll, and called “Some of the freshest, most compelling, and most soulful music I have heard recently” by jazz luminary Joshua Redman.
Incorporating funk, rock, and soul touches, without losing the essential swing and driving intensity of jazz, Reynolds has a talent for creating music that is both intricate and accessible. His musical style is focused, energetic, and captivating, and reflects a combination of influences as diverse as John Coltrane, James Brown, and Radiohead.
A graduate of Berklee College of Music and a four-time winner of ASCAP’s Young Jazz Composer Award, Reynolds has performed and/or recorded with notable jazz artists including Brian Blade, Aaron Goldberg, Gregory Hutchinson, and Tom Harrell. As a band- leader he appeared frequently at leading New York jazz clubs like the Blue Note, Jazz Standard, and 55 Bar. As a sideman he has toured the world with a diverse group of artists and performed at premiere venues including Lincoln Center, the Monterey Jazz Festival, The Kennedy Center, Royal Albert Hall, and Madison Square Garden.
After eight years in New York City and two years touring with Grammy-winner John Mayer, Reynolds relocated to Los Angeles where he currently performs on NBC’s The Bonnie Hunt Show, and is in demand as a studio musician and composer. He teaches students worldwide through an online studio and travels frequently for performances and as a guest clinician.
