Bassist Reggie Washington was a key participant in the Modern Jazz revolution of the 80’s and 90’s. He became known touring, recording and performing with Steve Coleman, Branford Marsalis, Roy Hargrove, Chico Hamilton, Oliver Lake, Cassandra Wilson, Don Byron, Jean-Paul Bourelly, Lester Bowie and Ronald Shannon Jackson.

In 2005, Reggie began successfully touring with his own bands. They were a mix of American & European musicians such as Ravi Coltrane, Gene Lake, Stéphane Galland, Jef Lee Johnson, Erwin Vann, Jacques Schwarz-Bart, E.J Strickland, Jozef Dumoulin, Skoota Warner, Matthew Garrison, Marcus Strickland, Jason Lindner, Poogie Bell and Ronny Drayton.

Since 2015, Reggie has been touring throughout Europe with his project "Rainbow Shadow - A tribute to Jef Lee Johnson" featuring guitarist Marvin Sewell or David Gilmore, drummer Patrick Dorcéan & DJ Grazzhoppa on turntables. They've released their second album on December 1st, 2017 and are currently touring through Europe.

In 2018, Reggie decided to explore the acoustic bassist side of his personality. For this new quartet "Vintage New Acoustic", he enlisted the services of multi-keyboardist Bobby Ray Sparks, drummer E.J. Strickland and saxophonist Fabrice Alleman to create something NEW while paying tribute to the legends he shared the stage with. Stay tuned for the new album coming in Fall 2018.

A versatile, 360-degree musician, Reggie plays Jazz, Funk, R&B, Blues, World and Experimental music with a natural and contagious energy. His bass lines are both sophisticated and explicit. He is diligent in his work and enjoys mixing people of different cultures as a way to enhance music by learning from others and sharing ideas.

Reggie is currently touring with Roy Hargrove & The RH Factor, Archie Shepp, Lisa Simone, Regina Carter, Jacques Schwarz-Bart, Mike Clark Trio, Robin McKelle, Alex Tassel, Dana Leong, Hervé Samb, Yosuke Onuma and gospel diva Liz McComb.

Reggie Washington will release a new album in Fall 2018 / Winter 2019 where he will play acoustic bass & electric bass.

This project features Bobby Sparks, Fabrice Alleman & E.J. Strickland.
