A very special collaboration between the JAW Family & the Steve Reid Foundation around the extraordinary music universe of NY Drummer Steve Reid (RIP).
The Night has two aims: raising money for the Steve Reid Foundation & helping Festsaal Kreuzberg with its reconstruction.
Proceeds will go to Steve’s close friend & brilliant jazz musician Arthur Blythe who’s currently struggling with Parkinson’s disease & serious health problems.

His illustrious career was also marked by innovation, experimentation and breaking frontiers, especially with his avant-garde & spiritual music in the 60’s-70’s & through his last work with in demand producer Kieran Hebden aka Four Tet. Steve Reid died in near poverty on 13 April 2010 from a throat cancer.
Steve Reid Foundation has been set up by London-based Dj, Radio Journalist & label manager Gilles Peterson in his name to commemorate the extraordinary life and legacy of the NY born Drummer but also in order to help musicians in crisis, especially those suffering from illness.
