Music Monday: Darryl Reeves
I cannot believe it is already Monday! Where did the weekend go? Well you guys already know the deal or maybe you do not. Either way, it is MUSIC MONDAAAYYYY!!! Today’s musician is a saxophonist who hails from Atlanta, GA who goes by the name of Darryl Reeves. He was another Twitter discovery for me, I am telling you Twitter is a musical gem. He seamlessly fuses jazz, funk and soul; yes I am aware that I have been covering a lot of funky jazz artists. I promise I listen to other stuff as well, eventually I will get to it. But seriously, this man is so talented after I heard him play, aside from Kenneth Whallum III, he makes me want to step my sax game up. Personally, when I listen to some of his beats you can hear that Southern influence. You cannot help but get lost in the smoothness of each instrument, if you are one of those people that need music to help you focus; I find his Mercury album does the trick. I press play and I get in the zone (I am listening to it right now). As I go through the Mercury album it comes to no surprise that he has worked with Phonte (formerly of Little Brother) their sounds are very similar and meld nicely. I also think his sound would work nicely with André 3000, let us hope that happens in the future. For the time being I need his cd in my life. Now I will let his music do the talking. Enjoy!
