Eric Reed has a prominent position among jazz piano players. His compositions hold accuracy and compassion – he proves it along these live Smoke sessions on September 6 and 7, 2013. His quartet was composed by saxophonist Seamus Blake, bassist Ben Williams and drummer Gregory Hutchinson. Reed composed eight of the ten selections performed, covering Clifford Jordan‘s “Powerful Paul Robeson” and Christian McBride‘s “The Shade of the Cedar Tree.”
