About the Album

Up-South was originally composed sometime in the early 90's to play as a duet with the great St. Louis drummer Phillip Wilson and it's title came from a conversation Reddy had with Wilson regarding race in America. It was later recorded in 1996 on Reddy's "Post-War Euphoria" by his Honor System ensemble. Here it is given a new reading by an octet for Reddy's "Bechet: Our Contemporary" recording. It is an example of the polyphony of early American Jazz music, several instruments playing individual melodies simultaneously. Personnel: Rob Reddy: soprano saxophone; John Carlson: trumpet; Curtis Fowlkes: trombone; Charles Burnham: violin; Marika Hughes: cello; Marvin Sewell: guitars; Dom Richards: double bass; Pheeroan AkLaff: drums.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings 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 step that will help musicians and venues 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 sticky footer ad). Thank you!
