Reggie Young | Steppin’ Up

Album Review: Reggie Young | Steppin’ Up
by Brent Faulkner

Steppin’ Up is standout bassist Reggie Young’s latest music project,
released July 5, 2011 on his own label, RGY Entertainment. Steppin’ Up
is an exceptional ‘jazz’ effort, but ultimately transcends the
confinements of one concrete style of music, shifting between jazz,
soul, funk, rock, gospel, and reggae. Young’s restlessness as an artist
makes Steppin’ Up such an exciting and worthwhile jazz offering,
shedding the clichés and providing an enthralling listening affair
throughout its fifty-three minute duration. To continue, please click “MORE”!
