Urgin' for the Virgin
Reggie is a second generation New Orleans musician who not only plays great saxophone and percussion but can be countd on for warm, jazzy vocals, a fine comedy sense, and a charismatic stage presence. As one New Orleans reviewer writes, 'Houston serves as a musical straight man to the up-and-ar-em Neville, reacting with Fats Waller-ish mock surprise to her 'Fish Fry' lyrics.' Since studying with New Orleans musicians Edward 'Kid' Jordan and Alvin Batiste, Reggie has gone on to do regular gigs with such greats as Irma Thomas and Fats Domino, as well as with Charmaine and Amasa. Reggie has also recently recorded with Buffy Saint-Marie and Peter Gabriel. Check out Reggie's solo CD 'Wordless Praise'
