Nancy Reed and Spencer Reed's unique brand of vocal and instrumental styling has been enjoyed by audiences for quite some time. They are celebrating their 50th year of making music together.
Their forte is their vocal blend, with tight yet natural phrasing and unusual harmony. Both grew up in New York City and started their musical collaboration as teenagers in the Bronx. They were influenced by the classic performances of Lambert, Hendricks and Ross, Carmen McRae and Jackie and Roy.
Their audience is always treated to a warm, relaxed vibe yet the music is swinging and intense. They offer an unusual selection of rarely heard tunes punctuated by unique treatments of jazz standards.
