Bob Reynolds
In a very special video piece for Best. Saxophone. Website. Ever., NYC saxophonist and music entrepreneur Marc Plotkin interviews saxophonist, composer, educator and sideman to John Mayer, Bob Reynolds.

For those of you who only know him as John Mayer's sax man, you're only getting a small slice of Bob Reynolds' musical world. Michael Bublé, Nellie McKay, Guy Sebastian, Richard Bona, Tom Harrell, and Brian Blade are just a few of the talents he's shared the stage and studio with. Ask Michael Brecker about Bob's playing, and Mike will tell you (and I quote), “Bob is one hell of a saxophonist! His sound is rich and his execution is seemingly effortless." Among his other fans are Joshua Redman, The New York Times, and Rolling Stone to give you a smattering.

Besides playing the hell out of the saxophone, Bob is an innovative award-winning composer and recording artist whose 2006 album Can't Wait For Perfect was voted Best Debut in the Village Voice's jazz poll.

In the spirit of constant innovation, Bob's latest foray into the world of music education is his online program of saxophone video lessons.

Video Interview Topics

  • Melding John Mayer's audience with his own
  • Approaches to composition
  • Bob's unique take on a well known rock tune
