"Steel with Brass"

Reece recorded this collection of swing standards with a horn section in 1992. It features the hot jazz solos and complex chords that are his trademark, accompanied by an in-your-face horn section. It's hard not to be drawn in by this music - the arrangements swing like it's 1948!

Also included is a pop ballad called "Heart of Mine", a vocal duet featuring Reece's wife Teresa and (trumpeter) Dave Alexander. While it's a bit out of place on this big band album, the change is refreshing and the song is very well done. And of course the steel is gorgeous!

"Out Of Nowhere"
Maurice Anderson and Jim Stahlhut

Recorded in 2005, this is the straight-ahead jazz album that Reece's fans have been waiting for. Guitarist Jim Stahlhut shares the headline credit, while Alan Hampton (acoustic bass) and Reggie Quinerly (drums) round out the quartet.  This is one that every fan of steel guitar jazz should have in his collection.
