Prolific percussionist and producer Steve Reid first surfaced during the mid-'70s, in the years to follow playing on over 700 recording dates, including sessions led by the legendary Miles Davis.
In 1987, he scored his greatest success yet as a co-founder of the enormously popular contemporary jazz group the Rippingtons, also crossing over to pop audiences as a member of Supertramp.
Named Jazziz magazine's Percussionist of the Year in both 1993 and 1995, in between Reid issued his solo debut, the worldbeat-influenced Bamboo Forest; the follow-up, Water Sign, appeared two years later.
Subsequent efforts included 1997's Mysteries and 1999's Passion in Paradise. Dream Scapes appeared in spring 2001.
