A Swing at Ashkenaz Production
Rob Reich Sextet "Swings Left" celebrates their album release at Ashkenaz with a concert of jazz music for dancing, rooted in the classic swing era of the late 1930s. Featuring classic arrangements of Benny Goodman, Duke Ellington, Count Basie, and Artie Shaw, "Swings Left" branches off from there and also features Reich's original music in the style, combining a hot rhythm with a cool sensibility.
Rob Reich is quintessentially what makes the San Francisco music scene a vibrant and vital mecca for independent music; he’s become one of its stalwart underground artists. His music defies genre, combining strong melodic ideas, rhythmic drive, and a spirit of irreverence and experimentation. He is best known for his work with Tin Hat, Gaucho, and Circus Bella.
