With a knack for hard-driving swing, daring expression, sophisticated artistry, and formidable technique, Eric Reed "has command of the keyboard…and nuances that make him a first-class jazz pianist" (JazzTimes). Last seen at the Kennedy Center's Jazz Piano Summit I in 2005, the gospel-influenced Philadelphia native returns for a 100th birthday salute to famed Hollywood songwriter and composer Harold Adamson, who wrote dozens of 1930s and '40s standards--among them "Time on My Hands," "Winter Wonderland," "An Affair to Remember," "I Couldn't Sleep a Wink Last Night," and "It's a Wonderful World."
