CD Reviews

Quiet brilliance
S. Guernsey | North Yarmouth, ME USA | 04/11/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The title of this review is for the artist as well as this recording. Steve Kahn has been a vital and sustaining force in modern music for almost 40 years. He has played with the best musicians on the planet and has contributed to the jazz and latin jazz catalog with wonderful compostitions. He was the principal guitarist on Steely Dan's "Gaucho". "Crossings" is one of my favorite recordings. Kahn's deep respect as well as his creative brilliance make these standards shine. And I include his originals as standards. The band is fantastic, Dennis Chambers on drums; Anthony Jackson on electric contra-bass, and Manolo Badrena on percussion, with Michael Brecker on tenor on a few tracks. Very highly recommnded!"
Fusion At It's Best
Funk Drummer | Chicago | 10/26/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I like this album for several reasons. The first being that the songs are really great. It's not a jam-oriented fusion chops festival, but rather an album filled with great compositions. It has sort of a carribbean-tinged flavor to the album. It's "cool" sounding, but don't think smooth jazz!!- that it is not. Maybe the most cool-sounding cd that I own. Steve Khan plays a really clean sounding guitar that is just beautiful. I consider this to be one of those "sleeper" albums that is so great, but that very few people are familiar with. If you can find a copy, go for it. You will enjoy it."
