have hired Bob Reid for my annual holiday party for the last 6 years.
He entertains playing solo piano, and accompanying the many instrumentalists
and singers at the party. Each of his piano performances show musicality
and good taste. I'm also impressed with Bob's uncanny ability to be empathetic
to whomever he's playing with. I will continue to enjoy his sensitive
musical interpretations this year!
the five years I've had the pleasure of performing with Bob Reid, he has
proven to be one of the most professional and versatile musicians I have
ever worked with. His range of different musical styles is incredible! He
had mastered jazz, the classics, and rock and roll. Bob is also an accomplished
songwriter. On stage, he is pure velvet.

attended a 2003 concert featuring Bob Reid and Friends - "A Musical Journey"
- at Centre 2000. The quality of the musicianship was excellent. Bob played
renditions of compositions by Gershwin, Rogers, and Bill Evans. Along with
the music, we were given a little of the history of each composer. This
is music we are all familiar with, but the interpretations were wonderful
and brought the songs alive again.
Reid was a tremendous asset on my recording project "Interaction". He could
quickly translate my arranging ideas onto the keyboard in the exact way
that I envisioned them. He's a team player all the way and a solid improviser.
His funky organ solo on "She Needs a Miracle" totally made the album. I
would happily work with him again.
hired Bob Reid to produce a recording of my music. My music was new to Bob,
but he quickly picked up the songs. In many cases, he made improvements
by suggesting new harmonies, and adding innovative piano solos and interesting
sound effects. In the studio, we laid down track after track, rarely having
to redo any. We laid down all 14 tracks of my CD in about 8 days, with only
an additional 2 days to edit and fine-tune the final product. Bob is an
inspired musician with talent to spare.
