Jon Regen Live in the Roxy Bar
Remarkable. Infectious. Soulful. Just some of the words critics have used to describe Stop Time, the new album by singer, songwriter and pianist Jon Regen. A protégé of the legendary pianist Kenny Barron, Jon Regen began his career as a sympathetic sideman to renowned jazz artists like Kyle Eastwood and Little Jimmy Scott. After releasing a series of critically acclaimed instrumental jazz recordings, Regen made an abrupt left turn in 2004 and released the singer/songwriter EP Almost Home. Recorded in a single day, the album won immediate acclaim and formally announced Regen’s arrival onto the worldwide concert stage. Regen followed the EP with his full-length 2008 release Let It Go, which featured Andy Summers of the Police and Martha Wainwright. Reservations encouraged.
