Bob Reynolds – Runway

Bob Reynolds is a Grammy Award-winning jazz tenor saxophonist known for his work with Snarky Puppy and John Mayer.

Bob about his new album “The concept for this album was to take the spontaneity of what this band does live, bring it into the studio, and build a sonic landscape for it that felt rich and wide and reminiscent of pop & rock music that’s influenced us. This album was also, for me, about experimenting with songcraft. It’s the first time I’ve collaborated with band members on the songwriting process. For songs like “Runway,” “Wash Over Me,” “Until The Next Time,” and “Moving Pictures,” I was trying to blur the line between improvisation and composition in a way I haven’t done on a record before.

This whole album was a search for opportunities to explore territories I enjoy as a soloist in other groups. Often they’re different from the places I gravitate to as a composer. Collaborating with this team was a much-needed breath of fresh air for me. Like all albums, this is an experiment in documenting how I hear and play music right now. Runway captures ideals I strive for as an improviser with elements I enjoy as a listener. It feels like something fresh that’s been there all along. I’m excited to share this with you and I hope you enjoy listening to it.”
