Benny Reid | Escaping Shadows [Concord Jazz/Music Group]Saxophone wunderkind Benny Reid’s returns with the follow-up to his impressive Concord Jazz debut “Findings“. Escaping Shadows include an inspired collection of nine originals, plus a moving arrangement of Pat Metheny’s “Always and Forever.” With this new CD Reid truly comes into his own… with his warm tone, great playing, distinctive, catchy melodies and infectious grooves. Grounded in the tradition of classic modern jazz, yet with his own original twist, he blurs the lines of musical category, making this album less about genre and more about great music.
