Scott Reeves featured in Downbeat

Scott Reeves

Composer and trombonist Scott Reeves is featured in Downbeat Magazine in conjunction with, Without a Trace, his new release on Origin.

It wasn't until trombonist/alto flugelhornist Scott Reeves moved to New York City in 1999 that he began to compose and arrange at the level he'd always envisioned.

GAIL PETTIS IN OPRAH'S "O" MAGAZINE

The story of a Harvard-educated Orthodontist giving it all up to become a singular jazz vocalist was enough for an editor at Oprah's "O" Magazine, who immediately got on the phone with our own Gail Pettis.

The result is a one-page feature in the October issue of O, on newsstands now and just in time for the new pressings of Gail's two critically-acclaimed albums - May I Come In? and Here in the Moment.
