“The Bay Area’s Ed Reed, who made his recording debut at 77, seems to be just hitting his stride at 84; his singing has only grown stronger and more confident with age. Reed’s story is the ultimate second act.” -Downbeat. Reed’s is the voice of experience and hard-won wisdom. After decades of drug addiction and repeated incarcerations at San Quentin, he has risen to become a critically acclaimed jazz singer. Reed enjoyed a release party at Yoshi’s Oakland in Nov 2013, guest appearance on Marian McPartland’s iconic NPR “Piano Jazz” radio show in 2008; a profile by Nat Hentoff in the Wall Street Journal in June 2009; and placement as Male Vocalist Rising Star category of the Downbeat Critic’s Poll in five out of the last six years. We’re looking forward to the real deal.
