Rob Reich Sextet "Swings Left" plays 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.

MARCH 2018

"Swings Left" is tracked! We had two wonderful sessions at Tiny Telephone studio, recording fifteen of my original tunes directly to 2" tape. Next up comes mixing, scheduled for June. I'm excited to share this music with you!

March also finds me in the studio with Ila Cantor's project Encanto, as well as the Nell Robinson and Jim Nunally Band. Lots of beautiful new music being produced!

I'm also gearing up for my April 21st show at the Red Poppy Art House, where I'll be playing with my quartet featuring John Wiitala, Ila Cantor and Ben Goldberg.



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.

"Rob's music is just like he is: guileless, thoughtful, playful and charming. His music wears a bowler hat and a pair of Chuck Taylors." - Carla Kihlstedt

"A master of succinct revelation, of vaporous extremes that get right to the heart, of plainspoken abandon." - Ben Goldberg

"Whatever context he's in, Reich transforms it into a creative hothouse where thousands of musical flowers bloom." -Andy Gilbert, East Bay Express
