Pleasing whirls, dribbly guitar features and verbose drums. Claustrophobic, with some moments of greatness. #indulgent

About the Album

Grey Mirror is the incredible new album from Toronto-born, NYC-based pianist Jamie Reynolds. Melding the modern jazz sounds of his trio (with special guest Matthew Stevens on guitar) with the intimate sounds of brass quartet, The Westerlies, Grey Mirror is an awesome collection of original music that takes the listener on a sonic journey through consonance and dissonance, the harsh and the smooth, the spontaneous and the carefully wrought. “Instead of writing new pieces for The Westerlies to play, I wanted to see what it would be like to hear the same songs expressed from two angles on the same record. Hence the mirror-image nature; the versions by the brass and the jazz quartet are recognizably the same song, but could not be more different in timbre and feeling.” Grey Mirror was released worldwide on the Fresh Sound New Talent label on Friday, August 4th, 2017.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
