Reggie Young – Young Street

New York has always been the platform of bass player Reggie Young. He is at home in clubs, theaters, and churches. He debuted in 1997 with his album Among Friends, followed in 2002 by a self-titled album with John Patitucci and Steppin’ Up in 2011 featuring saxophonist Darren Rahn.

His new album Young Street was released in July 2017. Reggie attaches importance to the statement that it is not smooth jazz. Beyond the meaning of genres, a classification in contemporary jazz describes his music with the typical uncertainty, which the listener has to accept.

On the new project are performing beside Reggie (bass), Garnett Walters (b3 organ), Paul John Jr., Daiquan Davis, James Rouse (drums), Darwin Noguera, Yeisson Villamar (piano, keyboards), Pablo Batista, Miguel Ayala (percussion), Bill Holloman (horns), Marissa Licata (strings), Andrew Swift (guitar), Onree Gill (Rhodes), James Cage (trumpet), James Hall (vocals), and John Peters (keyboards).
