Product Details
Description
Brownswood Recordings and The Steve Reid Foundation celebrate the life and spirit of one of the world's greatest jazz drummers - Steve Reid - via a deluxe 12" featuring a brand new interpretation of the classic 'Lions Of Judah' by emanative & Ahmed Abdullah backed with a Four Tet re-edit.

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.

The Steve Reid Foundation was established by Gilles Peterson in memory of his friend. The aims of the foundation are to fundraise on behalf of struggling musicians in need of help and support. All profits from the sale of the 'Lions Of Judah' 12" will go to the foundation.

Gifted drummer and producer Nick Woodmansey records deep, space jazz under the moniker emanative. Ahmed Abdullah is the trumpeter who played alongside Steve in The Legendary Master Brotherhood as well as being a veteran of the Sun Ra Arkestra and composer of 'Lions Of Judah'.

All in all, an amazing project with some very generous spirits involved. It was a pleasure and an honour to have Ahmed Abdullah bless this project with his composition and performance. Robert Strauss at Wax Recordings captured Ahmed's vibe beautifully; Jessica Lauren tracked down and had repaired a dusty old Farfisa Organ that had been in someone's loft for 20 yrs like sleeping beauty; Ben Hadwen and Max Grunhard blew the soul outta their horns whilst Nick Haward dropped two b-lines, both electric and upright. And to top it all off, Guy Davie at Electric Mastering ran it through their 70's EMI desk from Lagos, Nigeria that was used to produce records for Fela Kuti. Then last but definitely not least came the Re-Edit from Steve Reid collaborator Kieran Hebden aka Four Tet (bounced to tape by Nathan Fake to attain a more vintage sound). Throughout all of this, over in Montreal, Gene Pendon from HVW8 was busy creating this beautiful homage to Steve for the cover which Made in Earnest translated to the sleeve.

This will be a limited 12" vinyl-only release. 180gsm vinyl beautifully packaged in heavyweight cardboard and an art-worked inner sleeve featuring photos from the recording.
