    I've known Reggie for about 7 years.I met him in New Orleans at the National Baptist Convention when he was playing with Hezekiah Walker& The Love Fellowship choir and also got to see him in early 03 with James Hall.He is an amazing bass player and writer.

    BTW just about every Gospel bass player that I've heard have "Sick Skillz.Fred Hammond,Andrew Gouche,Joel Smith,Tony Russell,Alex Evans,Keith Taylor Maurice Fitzgerald,Jimmy Neuble-you get my point.

    I dig! You want to hear some funky funky, r&b, seriously funky bass playing? Pick up some urban gospel records by any of the big names (and not so big names)! I play my Kirk Franklin cd so much, I think I'm gonna wear it out (wear out a cd? :eek: )
    Even though it's a simple tune but I get chills every time I listen to Hosanna!

    I got just about all of Reggie's albums as well. Including all of the James Hall Stuff. He is an INCREDIBLE bass player. I actually met one of his protige's last summer at the Gospel Music Workshop in Florida. From what he told me, Reggie is not working a whole lot these days. For whatever reason, I dont know. I recently saw a DVD (its not for sale and cant be bought in stores) with him on it. He hosts this musicians conference every year I guess and he has local singers and musicians join him. Nathaniel Townsley played drums, John Peters was on keys, Melvin Crispell was on Organ. I cant remember all the cats who were playin, but TRUST ME, they were killin!!!!!

    He used to have a website where you could order all of his music. Atleast thats how I did it about 3 or so years ago. But now I'm not sure whats goin on with him, so unfortunately, I dont know how to get ahold of his albums.
