Nat Reeves

Nat Reeves has built a successful career touring the world with some of the most important figures in jazz in the last half-century, beginning with Sonny Stitt, most importantly in a role in Jackie McLean’s band that lasted until McLean’s passing, and more recently as the primary bassist for Curtis Fuller, Pharoah Sanders, and Kenny Garrett.  While not on tour, Reeves is a long-standing professor of jazz at the Jackie McLean Institute of Jazz at the Hartt School in Hartford, CT.

Reeves was born in Lynchburg, Virginia and by age 24 was in New York City, performing in small jazz clubs and at jam sessions.  In addition to touring and his professorship at Hartt, he presents workshops with the likes of Pat Metheny, John Scofield,  Peter Erskine and Tom Scott.  He also performs and records regularly with René McLean, Harold Mabern , Steve Davis, Eric Alexander, David Hazeltine, Houston Person, Larry Willis, Eddie Henderson, Joe Farnsworth, Randy Johnston, Javon Jackson, and Benny Green, to name a few..
