UNDER AN URBAN MOON / JAY MICHAEL REEDS

"A new CD from J. Michael Reeds called "Under An Urban Moon "

Many singers are born with an amazing voice, but it’s clear that J. Michael Reeds takes his innate gift one step beyond. Whether it’s from his own experiences, inspiration from other artists, or a keen understanding of what will affect his listeners, Reeds knows how optimally deliver his talents to his audiences. This reviewer, for one, wonders if the "urban moon" of the album’s title has been at least one source for the artist’s inspiration. If so, then let’s all hope that J. Michael Reeds takes many more m idnight walks around New York City.

8TH & MONA LISA / JAY MICHAEL REEDS

"A new CD from J. Michael Reeds called "8th and Mona Lisa" has happily just landed on my CD player. This is a first effort for the likable singer and it’s an impressive debut indeed. Reeds has come up with some nice material and it’s clear from his musical selections that he’s a fan of the late, great, Nat "King" Cole. Among other goodies, Reeds wraps his smooth style around such Cole favorites as "A Blossom Fell", "Mona Lisa", and my pet performance on the CD, "you’re looking at me". On this one he shines and gets as much irony out of this rarely heard gem as Both Nat "King" Cole and the glorious jazz singer Carmen McRae have in the past. CD is worth the price for that goodie alone. My only complaint is the CD is too short but don’t let that stop you from listening. I look forward to more from this cool dude."
