Saxophonist Bob Reynolds is equally at home in stadiums full of screaming fans as he is in intimate jazz clubs. He first appeared in the former as a member of superstar John Mayer’s band where his solos added wonderful new twists to well-known songs like Vultures and Wheel. Other greats also engaged his services, including Usher, Josh Groban, and Willie Nelson. But Reynolds is just as happy to blow experimental notes with the instrumental fusion group Snarky Puppy, with whom he won a Grammy Award in 2017. His experience with both stadium concerts and jazz club performances is reflected in the music of his own quartet with whom, every night, the ‘melody architect’ (as he calls himself) bridges the gap between catchy sounds and exploratory adventures. The sax player never loses sight of two things when performing: emotion and connecting with his audience.
