Reggie Workman is an internationally acclaimed bassist/composer/arts advocate and tenured educator (The New School). One of the most diverse and technically gifted bassists in modern jazz, his playing styles cover the range of modern music from Bop to Post-Bop and beyond. He has performed and recorded with jazz icons John Coltrane, Art Blakey, Max Roach, Thelonious Monk, Abbey Lincoln, and Wayne Shorter, emerging luminaries Jason Moran and Vijay Iyer
and frequently records and tours with TRIO 3 (a long-standing collective with Oliver Lake
and Andrew Cyrille). His recordings, Cerebral Caverns
(Postcards, 1995) and Summit Conference
(Postcards, 1994), are widely recognized as classics. Awarded by Meet the Composer, Mid-Atlantic Foundation, National Jazz Museum in Harlem and The New School Distinguished Teaching Award, his production company Sculptured Sounds (with consultant Francina Connors) has produced critically noted events, such as the Sculptured Sounds Music Festival in NYC, the film TRIO 3: At this Time
(with Geri Allen), the African American Legacy Project (AALP) orchestral and choral project, and Workman’s new collaboration RW WORKz.
