T. Oliver Reid
August 17, 2016
“To witness Mr. Reid infuse popular standards with the immediacy and intensity of diary entries… was to observe an unfaltering emotional high-wire act. While tiptoeing on his high wire, Mr. Reid repeatedly shot arrows into the hearts of songs, where they lodged, quivering.” –The New York Times
