"My music represents the cutting edge of jazz today. It's a healthy musical mix paying homage to our forefathers and exploring our craft by journeying down new roads to help pave the way for the future. For me, our music must evolve and I feel I'm among the select group of musicians / artists / stylists capable and dedicated to keeping jazz and all music alive and strong" - Reggie Washington
