Reid, Steve – “Steve Reid/NOVA Featuring The Legendary Master Brotherhood” – [Soul Jazz Records]

Drummer Steve Reid (born in 1944, still performing) has played with everyone, it seems, from Sun Ra to Martha and the Vandellas. His work shows the effect of his time playing in Africa, he also credits John Coltrane as an influence.

Very cool re-issue of a 1976 recording ??? jubilant, high energy with a driving beat. Sometimes it has a Latin sound; sometimes it dips into free jazz. Interesting piano continuo on some tracks lays a nice bass line, fine playing from all.

Music that makes you feel you are alive. Wow.

PGM: Organ alert: A-2 and B-1.
