'My id' for Aubrey Dayle is the conscious musical illustration of his instinctual needs and drives; and the Toronto based drummer, who formed this group, harnessed some of the city's finest eclectic musicians. Pooling their strengths in jazz, rock, world beat, R&B and hip hop My id projects outstanding musicianship; and this musical brilliance is further boosted with this collaboration with virtuoso guitarist Vernon Reid. Vernon Reid and his exceptional Black rock band, Living Colour made tremendous strides throughout several decades; and their first-rate platform back in the 80s and 90s ushered them into the realm of a 'Black Coalition' of conscious and ground-breaking, top instrumentalism. Fusing philosophies of social justice, Reid and My id will together bring a sound of equality and freedom to the sound scape with this relaease. Living Color continues to impress audiences today and are enjoying a current major resurgence because of 'The Guitar Hero' video game that features their massive hit, "Cult of Personality." Featured on Dayle's debut CD along with, Allman Brothers bassist, Oteil Burbridge and singer Hassan Hakmoun, Reid has worked with some stellar talents like: Mick Jagger, Bill Frisell, Carlos Santana, Public Enemy, Garland Jefferies and James Blood Ulmer. James Blood Ulmer said "He was born in Jamaica, grew up in Canada and plays like he's from Georgia;" and Dayle has toured and recorded with Reid on the James Blood Ulmer Grammy nominated CD project 'Memphis Blood: The Sun Sessions' and 'No Escape from the Blues: The Electric Lady Sessions'. The contemporary 'jazzist' recently returned to live in Canada after being based in New York City for 14 years. He has also toured and recorded with Garland Jeffries, Sonny Rollins, Ernie Ranglan, Hassan Hakmoun and John Popper Band.
