STEVE GROSSMAN - SOME SHAPES TO COME


















Steve Grossman for PM records from 1974.
Hard as nails fusion from Steve Grossman and the PM gang:
Steve Grossman, tenor sax, soprano sax; Jan Hammer, Fender Rhodes, Moog; Gene Perla, electric bass, acoustic bass; Don Alias, drums, percussion.
This is the lp with the old break beat fave Zulu Stomp.Dusty Groove used to stock the cd reissue but it's now dissapeared.I've ripped this post from the original vinyl @320.
Beautifully choppy jazz from Steve Grossman and his legendary 70s comrades Gene Perla and Don Alias one of the heaviest hitting American combos of the time! The trio have a tight fusion sound that's as full-on as it is funky and Grossman blows some amazing work on tenor and soprano sax that cut into the tunes with a really fierce bite! For this session, the group's joined by Jan Hammer on electric piano and moog, playing in a nicely restrained fashion that's not nearly as overblown as his later work, and which jams into the groove just perfectly.

I am glad that you ripped this from vinyl. I have the CD and it sounds like crap (the sound quality, not the music).
