Vernon Reid: Mistaken Identity (1996)

vernon reid mistaken

By Scott Goldfine

Guitarist Vernon Reid, who made his mark as founder of the hard rock band Living Colour, steps out for his first solo effort with the eclectic “Mistaken Identity.” The facile fretman seizes the opportunity to exceed the scope of his former medium by straddling the genres of rock, jazz, hip hop and funk on this primarily instrumental excursion.

The use of a clarinet adds to the vivid kinkiness.
