Bernd Reiter Quintet (feat. Eric Alexander) - Workout (SteepleChase Productions ApS 2016)



Award winning Austrian drummer Bernd Reiter has already, in spite of his young age, played with jazz’s luminaries like Charles Davis, Kirk Lightsey, Mundell Lowe, Steve Grossman, to mention a few.

Reiter formed the quintet presented here in 2015 to perform a tribute program of Hank Mobley’s music featuring American tenorsax Eric Alexander whom he started to work with in 2012.

The band’s extensive European tour produced this live album from the last two concerts from the Bird’s Eye in Basil, Switzerland.

One of the reviews of the live performances simply put it “Jazz at its best!”.
