Union32 Quintet: Keith Kelly-tenor saxophone/flute, Adam Roberts-tenor & soprano saxophone, Brett Reed-vibraphone, Bailey Zick -upright bass, Ryan Anthony-drums & cymbals

The revered ambience of Muscle Shoals Sound Studio in Alabama is the birth place of The Stones 1971 album, Sticky Fingers. Drawn there by the power of the R&B records that were flowing out of that studio the band ultimately would craft a wide ranging collection of tunes, from the country inspired Wild Horses to the gut punch that is Brown Sugar. Our look at this iconic album visits every tune, painting with broader brushes – more introspective and concerned with ambience than the originals bar room brawling style.

Led by Dr. Brett Reed (vibraphone) Union/32 explores the rich musical traditions of various jazz composers and genres. For the past 10 years, Union/32 has brought great music to audiences around the Southwest. Whether playing the music of West Coast Jazz giants like Cal Tjader and Dave Brubeck, exploring Afro-Cuban jazz, or creating original jazz arrangements of the Stones iconic Sticky Fingers record, Union32 presents vibrant and thrilling instrumental jazz music.
