Born in Indonesia, Reza Saleh was enchanted by the bass before his teens.  His Dad encouraged to immerse himself in the Blues, which he did.  Brother Emir played the piano - and they would take delight in jamming as a family after school.  When Reza saw Earth, Wind and Fire in concert, his love for playing grew into a passion.  He was determined to find his way in the music business.

Now living in California, Reza has made tremendous strides toward a full-time dream.  He was named the Long Beach Jazz Festival Star Search Winner a few years ago - and has played on the same stage as Peter White, Ray Parker, Jr. and Brand New Heavies.  

No less than Victor Wooten encouraged Reza to keep to the grind - after hearing a take on Stevie Wonder's "Overjoyed" - and Reza has paid attention.  His debut CD, "First Step" is getting the attention of bass lovers all over the world - who sense the commitment to chords and harmonies in Reza's playing.  You'll hear some delectable tracks and get the rundown on Surviving in Southern California - the Saleh Way - when Reza joins us on 7/23/13.  Two p.m. Eastern USA time.
