A top-notch studio musician, Bill Reichenbach Jr.
occasionally emerges from the commercial music world to play jazz. His father (also named Bill Reichenbach
) was Charlie Byrd's regular drummer from 1962-1973. The younger Reichenbach
studied at the Eastman School of Music and then recorded with Buddy Rich
(1972), Toshiko Akiyoshi
(1976-1977), Don Menza
(1979), and Tom Scott
(1983), among many others. The technically skilled Reichenbach
, who led an album for the Silver Seven label in 1984, has mostly worked in Los Angeles studios during the past few decades, performing for television, films, and commercial dates.
