Steps/Smokin' In The Pit

LASERVIEW

This has beaucoup groove. If Bob James, Jazz Crusaders via Joe Sample is your bag, then this is a must.

The Best. A must have.

Some of Mike Brecker's greatest playing. A superb all star group playing fantastically. Also get Steps Ahead A Collection available on emusic as well. That one includes Step by Step and Parodox from the same group (although Gadd is not on the cuts from Paradox. Erskine is fine on that one though.)

Gadd in Great Form

This is my favorite Steps Ahead album. It has a great line-up of musicians who really let it rip on most of this set. Steve Gadd in particular really lays down the groove, and has a couple of nice solos here. I highly recommend this album.

Smokin' indeed...

This album is a gold mine of pure Jazz quartzite. It's Steve Gadd at his best with Brecker blowing a mighty horn. The band seems perfectly attuned to one another, no rough edges. Very dowloadable.

get it

Brecker is no longer with us. And thousands of sax players owe him big time. I can't think of a single solo that isn't worth listening to. Even the disco solos he did in the seventies. "Native New Yorker" And all those solos he did for James Taylor.

Pure genius

Gadd and Brecker dominate the show...an unadulterated jazz / R&B blowing session. Unlike Steps Ahead's later stuff, this is all acoustic...perfect.

They Say All Music Guide

Recorded live at the Pitt Inn in Tokyo, Japan this superb double-disc is one of jazz music’s finest moments. It includes the same lineup as Step by Step. None of the material on any of these three Japanese CDs is repeated on the other CDs. Buy all three, they’re worth every penny! – Paul Kohler
