Initially surfacing on the jazz scene during the mid-1970s, Reid has traveled the world extensively and is featured on hundreds of records--from Miles Davis to Santana. Although he is known mostly for his contributions to the enormously popular contemporary jazz group The Rippingtons, Reid's gift as a percussionist earned him honors as "Percussionist of the Year" in 1993 and 1995.
Stellar performances from pop sensation Mexine Nightingale and rising star Denaine add a rich topping to the grooves of "Dream Scapes." Rogerio Jardim adds to the seductive tune of "My Gypsy Heart," while Reid adds a touch of world beat to "Mango Punch."
"Dream Scapes" promises to touch listeners through the use of special effects such as bird calls, frame drums, a bamboo scraper and Japanese temple bells.
