Reid, Steve - Daxaar (Mega Blowout Sale)

While they last (we only have a few), these are half of the regular price!

Steve Reid was a peripheral figure throughout the 1960s and 1970s on many jazz and related sessions. This is his first album in a long time and I am happy to say that this finds him in fine form, playing an updated jazz/fusion/Afro-centric mixture that has a great classic sound and especially 'the groove', while also being very up to date with the use of electronics. Somewhere between Tortoise, Miles and Fela and you knokw that that is a great place to be! Recommended!

"This legendary jazz drummer (and former Black Panther) has played with the likes of Brown, Coltrane, Davis, Kuti, Sun Ra, and many more. He's also one of the most joyful and hopeful people on earth, still optimistic that bringing music to the people can help solve the world's problems. "Daxaar" is a series of improv sessions recorded with longtime collaborator and producer Kieran Hebden (Four Tet) on electronics. The ensemble also consists of keyboards, guitar, bass, trumpet, and percussion. The title is from an earlier spelling of Dakar, the Senegalese city where the album was made."
