"4 Stars out of 4"

Audley Reid – A Plays E

(Updated Review)
In my March review of Reid’s sampler CD, I was impressed by his high
quality recording, but it left me wanting more as the CD he provided
only had 5 tracks. This month, I received Reid’s finished work complete
with the 5 original recordings along with 5 new songs to complement
his sampler. The result, an outstanding piece of recording that I feel
will give fans of smooth jazz music something to talk about. His latest
CD contains songs written by fellow Chicagoan, Eric Montgomery, thus the
title of his CD makes sense. I was very impressed with Reid’s sax
playing. His sound is much like Kirk Whalum. Reid has a very nice sound
on the sax. The tracks, “Chill Session” & “On the Upside” will
leave you impressed.

"VERY Recommended"

Audley Reid - A Plays E (2005)

Very good smooth jazz album by veteran sax player Audley Reid who can compete with the best.
Very recommended.

"December 2006 Review"

On Nov. 9, Audley Reid performed in the Urban Room. "Reid" considers himself a "smooth" jazz artist. But his music has a spicy flavor that is attributed to his Caribbean heritage. Reid claims he is a Chicagoan despite being from Jamaica and Cuba, two of the most rhythmically gifted parts of the world.

His performance was nothing less than superb. What made it so impressive was that music like this could be heard in our own back yard. One would otherwise have to go downtown or to the north side of Chicago to hear good music performed at such a high level of creativity...
