    Rufus Reid and Friends

    Jul 19, 2019 @ 7:30 PM
    Location: Shea Center for Performing Arts

    For five decades, Rufus Reid has been a consistent and formidable influence in the jazz world as a bassist and educator. His work with Eddie Harris, Dexter Gordon, Andrew Hill, The Thad Jones-Mel Lewis Orchestra and Quartet, Kenny Barron, Stan Getz, J. J. Johnson, Lee Konitz, and Jack DeJohnette, to name a few, has cemented his stature as one of the great living deans of the jazz bass. For 20 years Reid was director of the Jazz Studies Program at William Paterson University and was instrumental in building the program’s international reputation as one of the leading jazz schools in the world. He has recorded more than a dozen albums as a leader, and authored the seminal text for bass methodology, The Evolving Bassist. Reid’s career continues to evolve. As a composer, he has written for strings, jazz ensembles of varying sizes, solo bass, symphony orchestras, and has received two Grammy Nominations for his compositions.
