In addition to Living Colour, Reid released "Mistaken Identity," his first solo album, in 1996. He has collaborated with numerous other artists including choreographers Bill T. Jones on "Still/Here;" with Donald Byrd on "Jazztrain;" with The Roots on "Party 'Til The End of Time," an end of the millennium tribute featuring the music of Prince's album "1999;" with guitarists David Torn and Elliot Sharp on "Guitar Oblique" (Knitting Factory Records); he was featured in the program "Magic Science," which includes Medesky, Martin & Wood and the Gil Evans Orchestra performing Gil Evans' arrangements of songs by Jimi Hendrix, presented by Brooklyn Academy of Music (BAM) and the Experience Music Project in Seattle; and he performed and recorded with Free Form Funky Freqs, an experimental trio with Philadelphia bassist Jamaaladeen Tacuma and drummer G. Calvin Weston.
Reid has produced records by Resort (a Mexican hard rock group) and two Grammy-nominated albums: "Papa" by the great African singer Salif Keita and "Memphis Blood: The Sun Studio Sessions" by James "Blood" Ulmer. Blood's album "No Escape from the Blues" was also produced by Reid. Reid composed the score for the film "Paid In Full," directed by Charles Stone III (well known for creating the "Wasssup!" series of commercials for Budweiser as well as directing three videos for Living Colour) and released by Miramax in the fall of 2002. Reid also composed the score for the celebrated documentary "Ghosts of Attica," which aired on Court TV in the fall of 2001 and has been featured at several film festivals.
