Scott Reeves is a Professor of Music at the City College of New York and has also been on the faculties of the Juilliard School, University of Southern Maine, Virginia Commonwealth University, University of Memphis and Western Washington University. He is the author of jazz improvisation texts, compositions and arrangements for large jazz ensemble, and a noted New York-based performer, recording artist and clinician.
"Without a Trace" is the second recording on Origin Records by the Scott Reeves Jazz Orchestra. It features outstanding New York musicians such as saxophonists Steve Wilson and Tim Armacost, pianist Jim Ridl and vocalist Carolyn Leonhart. Scott's music carves out a new approach to big band writing by combining a contemporary harmonic palette and non-traditional forms with infectious, swinging grooves and great soloing by world-class jazz musicians.
