O’s Notes: Scott Reeves is a trombonist and composer who plays in and around NYC in many band configurations. With time on his hands during the pandemic, he unearthed this live performance at City College, Harlem, May 2005. His band was a quintet with Russ Spiegel (g), Mike Holober (keyboards), Howard Britz (b) and Andy Watson (d). This era found Reeves experimenting with electronic enhancements for his horns and the performance stretches the envelope for a delightful performance. Thanks to the masterful mixing by Brian Montgomery to extract rich audio from the original recording.
