Incorporating his straight-ahead and free Jazz influences with both classical and Eastern music sensitivities, Reggie Workman, maestro & former bassist for John Coltrane, has taken the next exciting step beyond his Postcards debut, Summit Conference, with this album entitled Reggie Workman: Cerebral Caverns. Also featuring renowned members of the Jazz elite, such as Al Foster, Julian Priester, and Geri Allen, this recording results in a cohesive album that boldly explores the wide and varied Jazz landscape.


“4 Stars…this entire team of spelunkers digs where we’ve seldom

gone before, flooding dark chambers with their flashes of brilliance.

What Workman brings to life on Cerebral Caverns is fantastically

 rare and rewards repeated listening.”                        - Down Beat Magazine


“Workman, continually stretching, exploring and experimenting,

 just might be the future of jazz.”                                 - CMJ


“aesthetically adventurous . . . the innovative instrumentation and

the vivid dynamics of the recorded sound make it a feast of new

sonic colors, one ear thrill after another.”                   - Stereophile


The album fast forwards into the musical future, to a heady mix of traditional Jazz instrumentation combined with the added texture and flavors of harp, tablas, samples, and electronics.  By varying the combination of players from piece to piece, Workman has produced a kaleidoscope of differing musical strata on this recording, entitled Reggie Workman: Cerebral Caverns (also available on CD). By using a broad and imaginative musical palette on this compelling recording, Workman not only pushes forward the bounds of Jazz, but also never fails to rivet the listener’s attention.
