Wayne Reynolds Infuses His Jazz, Pop, and Easy Listening Music with Bossa Nova Flair

Image

Wayne Reynolds, an eclectic singer songwriter, creates easy listening music infused with a number of different musical styles. While Reynolds was classically trained by Cuban guitar  legend Juan Mercadal, he is also heavily influenced by Bossa Nova masters Baden Powell and Joao Gilberto.

Reynolds has re-released his album “Another Day Goes By” this year. It contains elements of Folk, Pop, Jazz, Classical, Bossa Nova, Oldies and more! He really pulls influences from his years playing classical guitar and being on the forefront of rock in Memphis, Tennessee in the 60’s. You combine those musical qualities and add some Jazz to it and you’ve got Wayne Reynolds! As an eclectic singer, songwriter, and guitarist, Reynolds has consistently avoided kowtowing to any brand of musical dogma throughout his musical career. I’m reminded,” muses Reynolds, “of the exhortation by none other than Bobby McFerrin that we should not live in the same musical room all the time. Walk around, don’t get stuck.”

There is no doubt that “Another Day Goes By” adheres to the open-ended artistic ethos that has sustained Reynolds since the beginning of his musical journey. You can listen, download, or order the album on iTunes and Amazon. You can also download his single “A Little Gray” for free on Facebook here!

Folk, Pop & Easy Listening Artist Wayne Reynolds Re-Releases CD: Another Day Goes By

Wayne_Reynolds_Cover_Art_Another_Day_Goes_By0001

Artist Wayne Reynolds’ new album “Another Day Goes By” contains elements of Folk, Pop, Jazz, Classical, Bossa Nova, and more!  An eclectic singer, songwriter, and guitarist, Reynolds has consistently avoided kowtowing to any brand of musical dogma throughout his musical career [sic: Not being pigeonholed into one particular genre]

I’m reminded,” muses Reynolds, “of the exhortation by none other than Bobby McFerrin that we should not live in the same musical room all the time. Walk around, don’t get stuck.” 

Reynolds’ influences on the album span from pop tunesmiths Jimmy Webb and Billy Joel to Bossa Nova masters Baden Powell and Joao Gilberto.  “We developed the arrangements more or less in real time with the rhythm section, and then multiple overdubs for the soprano sax, background singers, and the rest.” Though the record has a rich, full sound and finds Reynolds supported by a full band of obviously empathetic players, the arrangements are acoustic-oriented and the album retains a light, airy feel.

There is no doubt that “Another Day Goes By” adheres to the open-ended artistic ethos that has sustained Reynolds since the beginning of his musical journey.  You can listen, download, or order the album on iTunes and Amazon.

Great Tip for Guitar players

Check this story – I swear, it’s the only guitar case you’ll ever need-RB Continental
I have to tell you about this RB Continental guitar case I recently bought. It’s pretty amazing. I can literally pack everything I need for an overnight night gig in this case and not even need any other luggage. I was traveling to Grand Junction, CO from San Francisco for a gig. I arrived at the US Airways baggage check-in in Oakland and (reluctantly) handed over my RB Continental case, with an Epiphone Dot Studio guitar inside, to the airline.

The flight there was about the worst ever, the turbulence was scary as there were storms lined up the whole way. Then, if that wasn’t enough, I had to hop on a 2 propeller prop job for the final leg to GJ. It had been a number of years since I’d had the pleasure to fly on one of those and I’d forgotten just how much “fun” they can be.

Upon landing I headed to baggage claim. Here comes my RB case down the carousel – with nervous anticipation I slowly opened the case and voila! There was the Dot in perfect condition. Not a scratch, dent, ding or blemish of any kind. Truly amazing.

In fact Reunion Blues even threw this case off of a 3 story building (video). If your guitar has to be subjected to the whim and whimsy of airline baggage handlers you can at least have some peace of mind knowing that it’s ensconced safely in a killer case. It’s the only case I’ll ever need, they last forever and the RB Continental won’t break the bank either! Click here to locate the closest dealer with it in stock (they sell out fast!)

Laptop, cables, backpack straps and more!
