"While working as a technician installing a fire alarm sytem with several other people in a large court house over an entire summer, I had only two cassette tapes to listen to on my cheap one-speaker portable cassette player. The Blue Man by Steve Khan was one of them and Cosmic Messenger by Jean-Luc Ponty was the other. I enjoyed them both but listened mostly to The Blue Man. I must have heard it several hundred times that summer. I never got tired of it then. I did move on to other music later on.

The title cut "The Blue Man" is unforgettable. I was amazed when I first heard it and listened to it over and over. I haven't had the cassette for about 20 years, but I can still remember that song, especially the ultra-smooth synthesizer opening (like nothing I've ever heard before or since) and the rock solid - like a massive boulder - guitar introduction. And above all, I remember the mood it evoked, one of stoic hope and joy. The rest of the album is great too. It includes the Brecker Brothers playing a at very high level and tightly on several cuts. They add to the feel that Steve Khan establishes with his guitar. I sent a letter to Steve to let him know how much I enjoyed the music and got a nice hand-typed (this was the early eighties) letter back.

If you're into jazz fusion guitar, this will fill the bill. I haven't heard it recently enough to guarantee this, but I suspect that the music is timeless enough that you won't feel thrown back to the eighties, unless you've already listened to it and that's when you listened. Another album I enjoyed to the max from that era was Larry Carlton's self-titled album "Larry Carlton.""

"S.K. is a rare find indeed. Known mostly within the circles of music recording and session musicians, I first heard of him from his session work on some Steely Dan L.P.s of the late 70's. His style/work shines, as an almost punky but reflective jazz... it's fresh not elevator music unless you own the bldg. The L.P. is one of my favs..."
