Description

Reggie Workman is recognized as one of the most original and technically gifted bassists in jazz and American contemporary music.

A native of Philadelphia, Reggie grew up beside Lee Morgan and Archie Shepp and began his professional career in the late 1950’s. Reggie is a multi-faceted bassist, bandleader, composer, educator, producer, and soloist-composer with dancers & actors. His style spans from Post-Bop to Futuristic, incorporating a contemporary approach to jazz improvisation and composition. As a result, Workman has invented and “sculpted” his own “sound -specific-scape” and is currently writing music for Big Band with strings. Reggie tours, develops new music/art curricula, workshops, and presents widely varied configurations of the “Reggie Workman Sound.” Reggie Workman has been a faculty member and professor at The New School for Jazz and Contemporary Music in New York City since 1987.

This concert will feature Reggie Workman playing with two of his best student groups from The New School jazz program:  Deeper Dreamer, a multi-ethnic quintet that will open the concert – and New Stars on the Horizon, a large ensemble of polished performers.
