On his previous album, Everybody Gets the Blues, Eric Reed confronted his demons and used music to make sense of them. Here he does it again, but with the added complications of what we have all been beset by this year. Locked down in Los Angeles, the American pianist’s quartet here reflect on the pandemic, prejudice and the presidency. Yet while the mood is subdued, swing is never far away.
