Reptet plays jazz music informed by a post modern sensibility. They are rooted in the spirit and language of traditional jazz styles, but refuse to be relegated to the past. In fact, they are harbingers of a new liberated style of music that has yet to be branded by genre. They are a sextet consisting of six multi-instrumentalists that perform original compositions written by band members. They have established themselves as a group of considerable excitement, talent and vision while simultaneously debunking preconceived notions of what a 'jazz group' ought to be. Their latest CD, 'Do This!' (Monktail Records) was a 2006 Independent Music Awards finalist for Best Jazz Record of the Year and was chosen Best Jazz CD of 2006 by Jazziz magazine's Alex Gelfand. They also won two 2006 Earshot Golden Ear Awards (celebrating the best of northwest jazz), including Best 'Outside' Jazz Group and Best Performance of the year (as part of the Monktail Raymond Scott Project). Their music has been aired on radio stations across the North & South America, Europe and Australia. They have toured both the east and west coasts of the United States and their members have toured internationally. With the release of 'Do This!' Reptet have established themselves as an irrepressible force in modern music.
