The Reed family moved from Chicago to settle in Phoenix in the 1970s and have made a lasting musical impression. Their sound is Gospel-drenched Soul and Jazz. Francine Reed has gone on to national prominence, appearing as a star in her own right and as a featured member of Lyle Lovett’s touring band. Bob has recently collaborated with the family and engineering genius Clarke Rigsby to create the CD “Blood Harmony: A Capella.” This captures a musical reunion with the family singing a mix of mostly gospel numbers with some R&B and Christmas tunes thrown in. Here is the cover design by Tony Amato of Amato Image Design and some memorable photos from the family archives.
