Philipsek’s work as a guitarist has been reviewed in Guitar Player, Acoustic Guitar, Vintage Guitar, Billboard and Downbeat, where Philipsek received a four star review at the age of 22. Philipsek was chosen as a Guitar Player Magazine Jazz Poll nominee for six consecutive years (1975 to 1980), has been nominated for five Minnesota Music Awards, and has had three songs in the iTunes Top 75 Gypsy Jazz Essentials.

Since becoming predominately a jazz and gypsy jazz guitarist, Philipsek has appeared at various gypsy jazz festivals, jazz clubs and concert venues including the Grand Marais Jazz Festival, Twin Cities Hot Summer Jazz Festival, The Cedar Cultural Center, Dakota Jazz Club, and Artists’ Quarter.


A documentary film about the life and career of Reynold Philipsek entitled A Life Well Played was screened at four United States film festivals and one Canadian film festival during the fall 2016 Film Festival circuit, and was awarded “Best Documentary Short” honors by the Highway 61 Film Festival.


Philipsek regularly receives press coverage from traditional print and online outlets such as the StarTribune,, Vintage Guitar, Acoustic Guitar, MinnPost and International Musician. Philipsek appears regularly on television and radio — both as a solo performer and with his collaborative efforts — including KARE 11 Showcase Minnesota (Minneapolis/St. Paul, MN), WFMU (New York, NY), and Minnesota Public Radio (Minneapolis/St. Paul, MN).


Active as a composer and performer, Philipsek can be seen as a solo performer, and in numerous collaborative efforts. Philipsek has performed in support of national and international acts such as Connie Evingson, Clint Hoover, The Wolverines Big Band, Glen Helgeson, and Patrick Harison. Philipsek played with French Gypsy Jazz master Dorado Schmitt during his 2005 U.S. tour. On August 28, 2010, Philipsek was one of two opening acts for Leo Kottke at Bayfront Festival Park in Duluth, Minnesota.

Philipsek’s latest releases, All the Things You Are (2010) and Tales from the North Woods (2011), include elements of gypsy jazz, bebop, Latin folk music, modal jazz and Slavic folk music informed by Philipsek’s burgeoning interest in the folk music of his Czech and Polish heritage.


Philipsek, as a member of the gypsy jazz ensemble The Twin Cities Hot Club, released in 2007 the DVD Live at The Times, featuring in concert footage, swing dancers, fan interviews and special guest performers.


In 2005, Philipsek was celebrating twenty-five years cancer-free when he realized that he had, to date, released twenty-four CDs. The concept for the CD 25 was born. Seven of the eight tracks on 25 are new recordings of Philipsek compositions from over the twenty-five years since the cancer diagnosis. Through a formal relationship with the American Cancer Society (ACS), for the first two years after its release, five dollars ($5.00US) from the sale of every 25 CD was donated to the ACS.

Philipsek’s early exposure to the influences of Joe Pass, Mike Elliott and Django Reinhardt have always informed his playing style and compositions, but it wasn’t until after the release of 25 in 2005 that Philipsek began to concentrate on jazz and gypsy jazz in his writing and recording. The CD titles that Philipsek has released since 25 all reflect a predominately jazz and gypsy jazz style.


Filmed in July 2004 and released in February 2005, Three Piece Suite/Munsinger Gardens (DVD) captures Philipsek, saxophonist Al Asmus and bassist Jeff Engholm performing eight Philipsek original compositions and three classic standards — Days of Wine and Roses, Night and Day, and All of Me.


In July, 2003, Philipsek released That’s My Face, a DVD of six promotional video shorts from Philipsek’s back catalog.


In June, 1999, Philipsek released a book of poetry entitled Journey to the Middle Ages. Based on autobiographical events and loosely inspired by Chaucer and Dante, the verse deals primarily with Philipsek’s thoughts on death, aging, time, fear and religion.


In 1998, Philipsek contributed to the album Grok This / Defacing the Music of Todd Rundgren, providing the Todd Rundgren-inspired track Invisible Man (Track 3).


Beginning in 1989, Philipsek became primarily a solo artist. Between 1989 and the present, Philipsek has released forty solo CDs (in genres including rock, pop-rock, jazz and gypsy jazz) on his Rephi Records label. The releases include both purely instrumental and vocal offerings.


In 1984, Philipsek scored the original music for the children’s film short, St. Cloud Sleep.


In the spring of 1980, Philipsek was diagnosed with testicular cancer. The diagnosis was particularly frightening for Philipsek as, at the time, treatments for this form of the disease had not reached the high survival rates found today. After undergoing chemotherapy procedures over the course of six months, Philipsek has been cancer-free since.


At the age of 18, Philipsek was exposed, through a radio broadcast, to gypsy jazz music performed by Jean “Django” Reinhardt for the first time. This proved to be a pivotal experience that would have a defining influence on his later career. At the age of 22 (1975), Philipsek received a private lesson and attended two workshops from jazz guitarist Joe Pass. During this same time period, Philipsek studied jazz guitar and The Complete Johnny Smith Approach to Guitar with Mike Elliott, a protégé of Johnny Smith. These experiences cemented Philipsek’s lifelong interest in jazz.


In 1970, Cure of Ares was chosen from over 15,000 entries as one of 50 semi-finalists in a national music competition, “Iced Tea’s Big Search for the New Sound” presented by the Tea Council of the U.S.A., Billboard Magazine and over 200 radio stations. Judges included Hal David (Academy Award winning lyricist for “Raindrops Keep Falling on My Head”), John Hammond (Columbia Records executive), Al Bell (Vice President and producer for Stax Records), Vince Calandra (talent coordinator for The Ed Sullivan Show), Bob Crewe (President of Crewe Records), and Don Ovens (Director of reviews for Billboard Magazine).

After Philipsek’s stint in Cure of Ares, Philipsek continued to play in various musical acts in the midwest in the 1970s and 1980s. In the early 1990s Philipsek founded and recorded three CDs with Reynold’s Remarkable Rhythm Cattle — Uptown and Country (1990), What’s Inside? (1991), and Memory Lane (1992).


Philipsek began playing guitar at the age of 9, and joined the American Federation of Musicians (AFM) labor union at the age of 14 (1967). Philipsek has been a member in good standing with the AFM since that time. At the age of 16, Philipsek wrote and recorded the single Oval Portrait, and its B-side Stepping Stone, with the musical act Cure of Ares. Oval Portrait received enough mid-west regional radio airplay to garner an invitation to perform on the ABC Television show THE HAPPENING ’69, produced by Dick Clark Productions, as an act performing in the band contest feature of the show. Cure of Ares taped on Sunday, April 20, 1969, for the Season 2, Episode 24 installment, which aired on May 17, 1969. The telecast included performances by Three Dog Night, and The Peppermint Rainbow. Each member of Cure of Ares received a Westclox wrist watch as a prize for their participation. From 1969 through 1971, Cure of Ares toured extensively throughout the midwest (North Dakota, South Dakota, Nebraska, Iowa, Wisconsin, Minnesota) and recorded a second single called Sunshine.
