Jazz Bridge in Collingswood! presents legendary veteran saxophonist Sam Reed
and his group on December 5th at the Collingswood Community Center, 30 Collings Avenue in Collingswood, New Jersey. Tickets are $10, $5 for students, and are available only at the door. Show time is 7:30.
It would be enough to ensure the legendary status of saxophonist Sam Reed to say that he did, in fact, play with the celebrated Charlie Parker
. Since those early days, Reed has played with dozens of renowned artists in jazz, pop, and R&B. His credits read like The Encyclopedia of Jazz
, and those astounding credits include stints with Louis Armstrong
, Sarah Vaughan
, Billie Holiday
, Lee Morgan
, Nat "King" Cole
and literally hundreds of others. Sam Reed's many fans and admirers thank goodness that, as a youngster, he gave up playing drums as a member of the American Legion Post in South Philadelphia, and switched to saxophone.
