Excellent Jazz Guitarist
JANK | Cambridge, WI, USA | 02/01/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Steve Khan (son of famous songwriter, Sammy Cahn) ranks next to Pat Metheny due to his distinct and concise style. His remake of the Pyramids surf classic, "Penetration" is nothing sort of fantastic and the mood he evokes on "Uncle Roy" is edgy and very captivating. Definitely NOT smooth jazz. Picture a little "tougher" Metheny, less fluid (in a good way), and very ...lyrical in style. Any takers? Highly Recommended!"
Masterful guitar work
Patricia Hennessy | USA | 07/03/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is the third release in a series of improv-based, live studio/ live recordings Steve Khan released with bandmates Anthony Jackson, Steve Jordan, and Manolo Badrena. It has a very similar flow and groove to Eyewitness and Blades (USA release), or Modern Times on Polydor, the second release in the trio of Khan's '80s Gibson guitar tone period.

What immediately stands out, notably on "Some Sharks" -- The Police-esque track and "The Suitcase," are the excellent vocals by Badrena. On this song and others, he has quite a great time cutting loose, wild-man style, in a heavily reverbed fashion adding a deeper Latin-flavored atmosphere. This instantly causes one to think of Andy Summers' chord stylings and voicings in Khan's guitar.

Paralleling Khan's masterful guitar work, it is noted by Khan that bass and drumming enthusiasts cite this as the record to get of the trio's '80s releases. Sadly, due to many financial and lack-of-touring issues, this master lineup finally broke up after this release. All the aforementioned Antilles recordings barely saw a U.S. release coming out four years after they were recorded.
