Steve Grossman – Love Is The Thing (Full Album)

Thanks! Share it with your friends!


“Although tenor saxophonist Steve Grossman’s main influence by the 1980s was Sonny Rollins, this quartet set could be considered a tribute to John Coltrane. With inspiring support from pianist Cedar Walton, bassist David Williams and drummer Billy Higgins, Grossman interprets such ballads as “Naima,” “Easy to Love,” “Easy Living” and “I Didn’t Know What Time It Was,” but is careful to vary the tempos and moods; he also contributes an original, “415 Central Park West.” Excellent modern mainstream music from a fine tenorman.” – Scott Yanow/AllMusic.
