Reggie Pittman, on his composition “Change”:

“Change is inevitable. The song, “Change”, represents transitions. The transition of going from a trying circumstance to triumph. In my case, it was curing my prostate cancer holistically. The change of becoming a vegan, changing my friends to more positive people, reducing stress (meditation, yoga…), and getting away from family that was harmful. “Change”, the song, represents everything we know we should do to improve our life. It is all wrapped up into a song. Change is inevitable.”

Point A to Point A

The Reggie Pittman / Loren Daniels Quartet

“Point A To Point A is a return to the great sounds of jazz legends from the past, brought to us by modern storytellers. Weaving in and out of sonic bliss, the quartet both captures the listener’s ear and makes it hard to turn the dial, as the album is packed with hits from open to close. It’s rare to find an album without a weak moment, and Point A To Point A might be just that.”
— Christopher Adams, Cashbox Magazine

Point A to Point A includes original tunes by Loren Daniels and Reggie Pittman, along with a funky cover of Charlie Parker’s Ornithology.  The sample audio features Fall, composed by Reggie Pittman.
