L.A. jazz clarinetist Russ Reinberg's debut CD, Blue Scarlett, brims with joyous, straight ahead jazz revealing exceptional warmth and ability. The rhythm section includes topnotch jazz veterans Larry Koonse on guitar, Dave Stone on bass, and Ray Brinker on drums. Russ Reinberg's CD includes covers of many jazz standards as well as four of his original compositions.
"Russ Reinberg achieved a modicum of recognition in the 1980s. He performed at Carnegie Hall, as a guest on numerous television shows, at concerts, and with many top jazz musicians. Even so, when I was Program Director at one of the premier jazz radio stations in the world, KKJZ in Long Beach, California, I once joked that Reinberg is 'the best kept secret in jazz'."
"The album is extraordinary. It is so captivating, its emotional impact so strong, and its approach so fresh that its appeal transcends jazz alone. It is music for everyone."
