FOUR PIECE SUIT
The Four Piece Suit story began in 1996. Coming out of one of the world's most highly acclaimed live R&B/Jump bands, Barrence Whitfield and the Savages, Four Piece Suit introduced their unique romantic and exotic blend of instrumental music with all the fire and groove that made them club favorites from Halifax to Helsinki.
Their debut CD, Ready to Where?, was added to 120 radio station playlists around the U.S.A., breaking into the CMJ charts, and making it onto the Grammy ballot for Best Pop Instrumental and Best Instrumental Arrangement for their version of Henry Mancini's Something for Cat from "Breakfast at Tiffany's", which appeared not only on their own CD but also on the Mancini tribute CD, Shots in the Dark , on Del-Fi Records.
Milt Reder ( guitar ) was mentored by Broadways Jule Styne. He went on to co-write songs with Don (Mercy, Mercy) Covay and Bennie (Please Dont Let Me Be Misunderstood ) Benjamin. One of his songs, Red Bandanna, was the first and only song to be performed in English by Latin music superstar Danny Rivera at Madison Square Garden in NYC. He toured and wrote most of the catalog for Roots Rocker Barrence Whitfield and the Savages. Milt worked as sideman and session player for Bo Diddley, Robin Lane, the Blue Hawaiians, Brother Red (with Plas Johnson), and Susan Tedeschi. As the creator of Rear Window studio, he has produced records by Barrence Whitfield, Four Piece Suit, the Groove Juice Symphony, Sugar Twins and others. He also composed and performed on HBOs Sex and the City.
