Rufus Reid

Rufus Reid spoke eloquently of his musical mentor and friend, Eddie Harris. He recalled the passion for musical innovation that was so much apart of Eddie’s life. Rufus himself is constantly trying to reach out musically to gain something new, just as his role model did. Rufus was a bit modest about the popularity of the influential method books that he has authored over the last 30 years. “The whole reason for writing those books was to help a young bass player. I am proud a few people have used them to make music.”
