Come Out And Play

Rufus Reid is a soulful and versatile bassist who I first heard on Album Album, an oft-overlooked record by Jack Dejohnette.  He has a distinctive tone and style that has recommended him to many jazz luminaries and pop stars as well.  Here is a tune of his that I like playing with a small group.  It works well when everyone hits the melody together, only hinting at the changes until the solos come around.
