February 9, 2014New record "Counterpart" is out!

Hey everyone - my new record, "Counterpart", is available now on your local online music source. Check it out, and also check out the making-of documentary in the Video section. I hope you dig it!

December 11, 2013Solo piano EP "The Thing Itself"

Hi everyone: this is a new recording that I hope you will enjoy listening to. I made this set of improvised solo piano pieces almost two years ago in Toronto. It's totally improvised; no sketches, no planning, etc. After spending some time with it, I decided to pair the music with a poem by Wallace Stevens, "Not Ideas About the Thing But the Thing Itself". The poem alludes to the raw phenomena of the natural world, in its incomprehensible rawness, and to the way it is observed, processed, and made comprehensible by a human consciousness. This has something to do with how this music was made. I hope you like it. It's a free download. If you download it, your email will be added to my mailing list, and if that's not okay, please let me know. If you choose to stay on the list, you'll get to hear about my next record, "Counterpart", that's coming out soon, along with a "behind the scenes" mini-documentary by Aestheticize Media. Thanks!

June 27, 2013Ottawa Jazz Festival/New projects

Hi everyone - I hope you're all well. Just got back from Ottawa where I played with Cloning Americana at the festival on Sunday June 23rd. It was a real honor to be on stage with Billy Drewes, Scott Lee and Jeff Hirshfield, guys I've been listening to since I was a kid. If you haven't heard their record, check it out: Cloning Americana, "For Which It Stands".

Stay tuned for a new trio record release in the fall...my second album is called "Counterpart" and features some electronics and production trickery and my original songs. I'm really excited for this new music to be heard. There's also a new Fresh Sound album in the works - it will be a quintet recording with some amazing musicians joining the trio.

Hope to see you all soon!

Best

Jamie

February 15, 2013Back from Canada

Hi everyone - the Jamie Reynolds Trio is back in New York after a great 10-day tour of Canada. We had a fantastic time playing for great audiences all across the country. Thanks to everyone we met along the way! Now it's back to working on new music. Stay tuned for our upcoming gigs in New York.

July 31, 2012Jamie Reynolds Trio - "Time with People" on Fresh Sound New Talent

My debut record, "Time with People", is now up and available on iTunes and Amazon!

A gifted pianist and accomplished composer with an abundance of startlingly original ideas, Toronto native and current New York City resident Jamie Reynolds makes a potent statement on Time With People, his debut as a leader for the Fresh Sound New Talent label. Joining him on this impressive trio date are bassist Gary Wang and rising star drummer Eric Doob. Together they exhibit an indelible tightness and uncommon delicacy on a collection of Reynolds’ intriguing compositions ranging from the darkly insinuating “Miel Coeur” and the evocative “Morning Sun” to more dynamic offerings like the driving “Cold Spring” and the intricate, densely harmonic title track. Along the way, Reynolds reveals traces of his piano mentors Fred Hersch and Craig Taborn, both of whom he studied with privately in New York, as well as key influences like Keith Jarrett and Lennie Tristano. But the depth of his compositional vision remains uniquely his own on this auspicious first outing.


Jamie Reynolds is a Canadian pianist, keyboardist and composer who has lived in New York City since 2005, when he
moved there to study with master pianists Fred Hersch and Craig Taborn. Jamie has played with some of the top musicians in New York, including Billy Hart, Cameron Brown, Rodney Green, Rob Scheps, Greg Gisbert, Jamie Baum, Joel Frahm,
Branford Marsalis, Ike Sturm, and worked with top producers, such as Jason Olaine. He has played at nearly all of New
York's top jazz clubs and has toured extensively in Canada, the U.S., and Europe, including a performance at the Newport
Jazz Festival. Jamie released his debut album, "Time with People", an acoustic piano trio recording of original music, on the Fresh Sound New Talent label in 2012. His second release, "Counterpart", combines electric and acoustic instruments with studio effects and melodic, thematically linked compositions. Jamie lives in Brooklyn, New York.


"This acoustic-minded trio nails technique and methodology. Such is the intense degree of focus and concentration, one guesses Reynolds may have recorded the entire album with his eyes closed…His brief improvisational pieces and the three-part "Locks" indicate an ability to lead from the heart rather than the head."
