Boomkat Product Review:
Originally out in 1976 as a small edition on Steve's own Mustevic label, Soul Jazz get digging and pull out an obscure one from the vaults.
Steve Reid is a lesser known, but no-less integral figure in US deep jazz from true left-field. Having worked within the heady environs of Sun Ra's Arkestra, as a Motown session drummer and behind James Brown at the Apollo [!] his career has seen some of the highest heights possible within the realms of music. No doubt, when you check a cv that further extends to work with Miles Davis, Leon Thomas, Fela Kuti, Ornette Coleman, Gary Bartz and so many more undisputed greats.
Personnel includes Les Walker on piano, Michael Keith trombone, Arthur Blythe on alto sax, with guest spots from Charles tyler and Melvin Smith on the cosmic ensemble style piece 'Center of the Earth'. this is a great opportunity to check some real outside playing from a genuine unsung veterans of the free generation.
