It has been a great pleasure for me to have a chance to collaborate with Steve Khan on his first solo album. I was constantly amazed at his knowledge of the entire spectrum of music. Steve's music signals a new era in jazz, combining the best elements of his rock, jazz & progressive background. It has been exciting watching it come to life on this record.

You have the magic of Steve Khan and the Brecker Brothers coming together. Khan's compositions are smooth yet lively enough not to bore. His unique drive, and pristine flourish and tone on his modded Fender Telecaster, and even his deft acoustic work, all come together to make a very satisfying blend of sexy jazz and funked-up, be bop fusion. If you listen closely, you will hear Larry.
