The Steve Reid Ensemble are set to play an exclusive London show at The Jazz Cafe on Monday 9th November. The cult free-Jazz drummer and percussionist has an illustrious career working with the likes of Miles Davies, James Brown, Sun Ra and Fela Kuti as well as a hugely successful collaboration with Kieran Hebden of Four Tet. Steve Reid and friends will be showcasing tracks from his new album 'In The Rhythms', due to be released in mid 2010 and as well as playing tracks from his seminal 1977 album 'The Odyssey Of The Oblong Square' and 'Daxaar' (Domino). The Odyssey of the Oblong Square is currently being rereleased on Soul Jazz.
