Reed's Bass Drum music CDs Reed's Bass Drum performs music through the lens of the jazz tradition. Fueled by a genuine interest in innovation, their distinctive sound is created by baritone saxophone, bass and drums. While performing original compositions or jazz standards, Reed's Bass Drum strives to provide a distinct vantage point from which to hear jazz music. "...Baritone saxophonist Jonah Parzen-Johnson played with irresistible verve and promise." - Howard Reich, Chicago Tribune "A surprisingly mature voice making some great music. Seriously musical." - Kenny Werner "...A successful mix of solid rhythm and exceptionally animated bass lines, along with bright motifs from the saxophone. Reed's Bass Drum definitely feels like jazz, but it's not hard to recognize the influence from many other genres of music." - Gi¼lfem Demiray, Miscellany News (Vassar College) "Tonight's show was really good. People were sitting around with their friends, or dancing to the music. It felt great and it seemed that everybody was enjoying it." - Alice ...

Reed's Bass Drum discography Reed's Bass Drum is a collective focused on composing music as dialogue for baritone saxophone, bass and drums. "I originally organized the trio as a workshop for compositions that simultaneously embraced the spectral range of baritone saxophone and bass as the primary melodic instruments, and existed as melodies that transcended the trio sound and became collective musical statements," says baritone saxophonist and composer Jonah Parzen-Johnson. "Reed's Bass Drum explores the trio format both as a way to place the bass and baritone saxophone comfortably in center stage and as a method of drawing from a tradition of melodically interested uninhibited improvisers." The influence of trios led by Fred Anderson, Sonny Rollins, Joe Lovano, and Fly is implicitly referenced in the work the trio produces. However, the defining use of baritone saxophone as the central melodic voice and the ever present intuitive dialogue between the members of the trio has contributed to a musical persona that is all their own. "By the time we got to the final writing stage of Which is Which we were writing tunes for each other more than for specific instruments," offers bassist Noah Garabedian. Which is Which, the trio's first full-length release, is a collection of pieces that exist as events performed by a single multifaceted voice. "We have always added a certain sound to the way we play the melodies of our tunes. Even when they have different vibes, they all sound like us," adds drummer Aaron Ewing. This diligent work pays off in the effortless performance of compositions that seem to be tailored to the ensemble and that glow with one collective personality. With Which is Which Reed's Bass Drum presents a groundbreaking re-viewing of the baritone saxophone trio, and polished presentation of compositional dialogues. Recording information: 58 North Six Media Labs (09/29/2009). Personnel: Jonah Parzen-Johnson (baritone saxophone); Aaron Ewing ...
