Here are some of my early releases from back in the 90's. They've not been easily availble for a while so I thought it was time to get them out there again. Downloads are working at the moment but that is going to be for a limited time only.
A set of films of the show I did last year at the Coronet in London has been made by Fay Buzzard. There are 3 full tracks of mine and a short documentary about the night, as well as films of all the other acts that played on the night too. Everything is up to watch on youtube now:
Gilles Peterson has set up The Steve Reid Foundation!!! This is a wonderful thing... please give your support. Here's the press release he's issued about it:
STEVE REID FOUNDATION: The Steve Reid Foundation has been set up by DJ Gilles Peterson in memory of the drummer Steve Reid, who died in 2010. The aims of the foundation are to fundraise on behalf of struggling musicians in need of help and support.
Steve Reid was an amazing drummer with a long and illustrious history that stretched from working with James Brown, Miles Davis and Fela Kuti through to his own Steve Reid Trio and more recently working with Kieran Hebden (Four Tet). He died from throat cancer in the US in April 2010 without the money for treatment that could have saved his life.
As Gilles says: “this is something that is very close to me and that I feel strongly about, and wanted to set up something as a lasting legacy to help others in similar situations. To this end, I am running the London Marathon on April 17th on behalf of the Steve Reid Foundation.” The Steve Reid Foundation is applying for charitable status and in the meantime will work closely with the Musicians Benevolent Fund to aid the plight of struggling musicians, especially those with long-term and life threatening health problems. A career as a musician may sometimes seem glamorous but more often it is a struggle and health related issues can often be the final straw.
A variety of other fundraising activities are planned, but in the meantime all the monies raised by Gilles running in the marathon will go directly to the Musicians Benevolent Fund. http://www.justgiving.com/GillesPeterson
