Three-time winner of ASCAP's Young Jazz Composer Award, Bob Reynolds' debut CD on the label that first introduced Brad Mehldau, Kurt Rosenwinkel, and The Bad Plus features 10 original compositions performed by some of today's finest young jazz musicians and introduces a bold new voice in jazz. His writing seamlessly blends complex ideas with singable melodies and infectious grooves resulting in music that is both intellectually interesting and emotionally satisfying.
The 28-year-old saxophonist, composer, and Berklee College of Music graduate has forged a unique path since arriving in New York five years ago.

Recently, jazz superstar Joshua Redman began performing one of Reynolds' tunes, Nine Lives, with his Elastic Band.
