A Light in Darkness – Eric Reed
This release returns pianist Eric Reed to the musical roots in the Black church of west Philadelphia that originally led him to mentoring stints with jazz greats like Freddie Hubbard, Joe Henderson and Wynton Marsalis. A Light In Darkness is a nourishing release that shows Reed as a musical minister, with support from bassist Ben Williams, and the talented drummer/vocalist Jamison Ross, with virtuosity that goes straight to the soul of the music, and the listener.
