Album Notes
For Mitch Reilly, the saxophone seemed to be like a voice, more expressive and dynamic than most other instruments, and he has always treated it as an extension of himself. This is evident in his first solo artist release,"Da Happnin' tone of the Maximophone." A unique mix of acoustic instruments with a modern R&B flavored rhythm section provides a spacious backdrop for the lyrical, rich sounds of what he jokingly refers to as the Maximophone.

Mitch's playing is soulful and melodic, full of sultry tones peppered with hints of Jazz, R&B and pop, and although his style was once compared to Branford Marsalis, his sound is uniquely and supremely his own.

Mitch left Chabot College after his sophmore year to tour with Uncle West, a two year gig that eventually steered him toward the Seattle music scene during the early '80s. He made his way down the coast to Los Angeles and set in concrete a successful career in the music business. He spent many years in the studio collaborating with such artists as Doobie Brothers drummer Chet McCraken and guitar master Chuck Yamek who both recognized and utilized Mitch's writing talents. By 1995, with world tours (Tiffany 1988 & 1989 ) and a long running television show ( Comic Strip Live on Fox 1990-1994 ) to add to his credits, Mitch began to get more serious about writing his own music.

Mitch and his family made Nashville, Tennessee their home in 1997 and he quickly became a member of EHO led by Engelbert Humperdinck. Time in between six years of world tours has given Mitch the opportunity to put considerable effort in composing his own material and the release of his first single artist album,"Da Happnin' Tone of the Maximophone," in October 2000.
