Albany -- An Albany native hits a high note tonight as his debut solo album is released.

Reggie Ward makes music in Atlanta but started his musical quest in Albany 30 years ago. His jazz and funk infused album "Say You Will" is set to be released nationwide.

Ward says he's happy to be back in Albany where he got his first taste of performing while still a student at Monroe High School."The first professional band that I was in started from here, a band called the Velvetones, so perfect place to start everything, right here. First album right here in my home town," said Reggie Ward.

Ward has been lead guitarist of the SOS band since it was formed in the 70's, and he's toured with other big names.

Part of the proceeds from his CD sales will benefit the 100 Black Men of Albany, Incorporated.
