Jazz piano luminary TOM REYNOLDS grew up in Chicago.  Moving to Nashville after his university days, he had the good fortune of performing with outstanding musicians throughout the mid ‘90s.

He worked as Music Director and toured with Grammy-winning jazz vocal group “Take Six” which included an HBO ‘House of Blues’ special, and appearances on both ‘The Tonight Show’ and ‘The Today Show’ on NBC.   He also toured extensively as Music Director for Engelbert Humperdinck, and performed and toured with country artists including Shania Twain, Shelby Lynn, Crystal Gayle, and Ty Hernon, as well as with R&B artists Max Carl (from ’38 Special’) and Glen Frey (of ‘The Eagles’).  While in Nashville, he also performed on the jazz scene with artists including Jeff Coffin (saxophonist with Dave Matthews), Bela Fleck, Victor Wooten, Kirk Whalum, and Chester Thompson (drummer from ‘Genesis’).  

Living in Toronto since 2007, Reynolds has been a regular in the studios and jazz clubs, and in 2010 recorded his own trio CD with bassist George Koller and drummer Lorne Nehring.  More recently, he has recorded and performed with Jim McCarty (drummer for ‘Yardbirds’) and occasionally with acclaimed vocalist Jackie Richardson.  He is also a member of ‘In Orbit’ with Jeff Coffin, Felix Pastorius, and Canadian musicians Michael Occhipinti (guitar) and drummer Davide Direnzo, recently releasing their first recording and touring North America.

This evening’s all-star TOM REYNOLDS TRIO features PAUL NOVOTNY (bass) and LORNE NEHRING (drums), entertaining in the up-close-and-personal ambience of the Home Smith Bar.
