Dizzy's Club

Big Band Sound of Rufus Reid

With bassist and bandleader Rufus Reid, drummers Dennis Mackrel and Chris Beck, pianist Dennis Mackrel, guitarist Vic Juris, alto saxophonists Steve Wilson and Anton Denner, baritone saxophonist Carl Maraghi, trumpeters Frank Greene, Ingrid Jensen, Tim Hagans, Freddie Hendrix, and Tony Kadleck; and trombonists Ryan Keberle, Dion Tucker, Gina Benalcazar, and Dave Taylor.

Rufus Reid has long been one of the world’s top bassists. He’s toured and recorded with Stan Getz, Kenny Burrell, Nancy Wilson, Thad Jones and Mel Lewis, Dexter Gordon, Benny Golson, and countless others. These days, Reid is increasingly stepping into the spotlight as a bandleader, and his big band is truly remarkable. His most recent album, featuring almost the exact same lineup as the group at Dizzy’s, received Grammy Award nominations for Best Large Jazz Ensemble Album and Best Instrumental Composition. It’s a striking suite of music, fusing swinging jazz and European classical music with a rare level of depth, intensity, and variety. Reid’s grand compositions are the centerpiece of the experience, and the world-class soloists throughout his band help make each piece even more special and unique.
