Composer and saxophonist Jimmy Reid's credits include Michael Buble, Brian McKnight, Celine Dion, Sly Stone and David Foster. His passion for performing later revealed another great love -- what goes on behind the scenes. Today, his epic orchestrations cover war scenes, crime and chaos, and dark, lush fantasy themes (featured on 2010 Access Hollywood's "Golden Globe" episode). Other compositions include delicate Classical numbers with piano and strings. Jimmy's diversity and quality productions are suited perfectly for Feature Films, Documentaries, Trailers, TV, Games, and Radio.

Performing credits include David Foster, Michael Buble, Josh Groban, Brian McKnight, Eric Benet, Deborah Cox, Ruben Studdard, Philip Bailey, Sly and the Family Stone, Rufus, and others.
Comments about Jimmy Reid's music: "Great production, fresh idea, always wonderful sax playing, good going Jimmy!!! - David Foster (Multi-Grammy award-winning Producer/Writer). (Re Jimmy's "Viva La Vida")
"I Listened to 'Stay the Night' and now I feel like kissing someone..." - Marc Shaiman (Composer- "Simon Birch, South Park, Hairspray, City Slickers")
perfect chill groove for most urban settings. Very hooky melody countered by an unforgettable string motif, sure to get stuck in your head. There is a mysterious undertone in secions, especially the final minute of the piece, that leaves you with an "up to no good" vibe.. never know what can happen. Instrumental, RnB, Contemporary RnB
