New special one-off pressing limited gold CD edition of this deep spiritual jazz classic. // Drummer extraordinaire and legend, Reid has played with everyone from James Brown to Sun Ra, Fela Kuti and Miles Davis, friend of John Coltrane, worked at Motown, and later collaborated extensively with Kieran Hebden, following his path of a radical, revolutionary music up until his untimely death in 2010. // Soul Jazz Records are re-releasing this rarest release of deep heavyweight jazz by Steve Reid & The Master Brotherhood, entitled Odyssey of the Oblong Square, first released over thirty-five years ago on Reids own Mustevic Sound record label and has been a serious collectors album ever since. // This special gold edition is a one-off pressing, which, like the original, is limited to 1000 copies worldwide. Steve Reid became known worldwide for his radical collaborations with Kieran Hebden after they first recorded together on the Steve Reid Ensemble album Spirit Walk, released on Soul Jazz in 2005, releasing five joint releases together in the following years. // Reid is steeped in musical history and a true pioneer of US deep left-field jazz. He played in Sun Ras Arkestra, was a Motown session drummer and backed James Brown at the Apollo! He was a Black Panther, imprisoned during the Vietnam war as a conscientious objector, and lived in Africa in the early 1970s. Reid worked with Freddie Hubbard, Gary Bartz, Ornette Coleman, Lester Bowie, Fela Kuti, Leon Thomas, Miles Davis and many more in his long illustrious and groundbreaking career. // "A Truly Phenomenal Artist" Gilles Peterson // "Steve Reid is one of the greatest drummers. He is a musical genius." Kieran Hebden, Four Tet // "Reflects the spirit of a generation- Art Ensemble of Chicago, John Coltrane, Pharoah Sanders, the Black Artists Group." The Wire
