....and this just in to the Newsroom:
During the evening of Sunday, February 10th, 2013, I received a wonderful phone call from engineer James Farber informing me that, Brent Fischer had just accepted the Grammy for his beloved father, Clare Fischer, as ¡RITMO!" had won a Grammy for the BEST LATIN JAZZ ALBUM!!! I was so happy for Clare, his dear wife Donna, and, of course, and his son Brent, who keeps the flame burning brightly!!! James also recounted to me that, in Brent's acceptance speech, he actually made the effort to mention me, along with fellow participants: Peter Erskine and Alex Acuña. That was so very thoughtful and kind of Brent. For me, it was, quite simply, a great, great honor to have played a small part in the recording! Congratulations to everyone involved!!! Bravo!!!
If you would like to read about my participation on the tune, "San Francisco, P.M."(Dedicated to Cal Tjader) which opens the CD, just click on the CD cover, and it will take you there. I hope that you will enjoy reading the story, and, of course, hearing the solo.

Presently you can get: "TIGHTROPE"; "THE BLUE MAN"; "ARROWS"; "THE COLLECTION"; "EVIDENCE"; "EYEWITNESS"; "CASA LOCO"; "LOCAL COLOR"; "PUBLIC ACCESS"; "GOT MY MENTAL"; "THE GREEN FIELD"; "BORROWED TIME"; "THE SUITCASE"; "YOU ARE HERE"; and, of course, "PARTING SHOT"!
Hopefully, coming soon will be: "MODERN TIMES"; "LET'S CALL THIS"; "HEADLINE"; and "CROSSINGS"!!! Once those are up there, all the significant recordings will have been made available. Check back here for more news
AVAILABLE!!! "PARTING SHOT" is Steve's brand new recording, and it features Eyewitness veterans: Anthony Jackson, Dennis Chambers, and Manolo Badrena, alongside the tremendous Latin percussion team of Marc Quiñones and Bobby Allende. Together they perform 7 new compositions from Steve, and his interpretations of "Bye-ya" by Thelonious Monk, and both "Chronology" and "Blues Connotation" by Ornette Coleman. Recorded by James Farber at Avatar Studios on November 6th-7th, 2010, and mixing was just completed this past January 7th.
This spectacular recording features performances by guest artists: Rob Mounsey(keyboard & orchestrations), and, Steve was honored to have both Andrés Beeuwsaert(Aca Seca Trio) and Brasilian vocalist, Tatiana Parra singing the vocalese section on Steve's tune, "Influence Peddler." Perhaps, though it might be too bold to say, this is one of the first Latin Jazz recordings led by a guitarist in decades.
The simultaneous releases are now scheduled as follows: 55 Records(Japan) will release the CD first on April 20th. And then, on April 26th, both Tone Center Records(USA) and ESC Records(Germany/Europe) will follow. The cover art features another one of Steve's favorite artists, the great Frenchman Michel Granger. It has been a longtime dream for Steve to be able to feature a cover by Granger.
The reviews have just started to come in, beginning with great reviews from allaboutjazz.com's senior writer, John Kelman and Mark F. Turner. Please make certain that you also take some time to read STEVE'S PERSONAL REFLECTIONS on each tune from "PARTING SHOT." When "In the Artist's Own Words" was launched as a feature during 2006, the very first presentation was Steve's Personal Reflections on "THE GREEN FIELD."
For anyone who is interested in reading further Reviews and Press, you can now access them on a separate page via the link. Thanks to everyone from the public, to radio programmers, and the press, who have been so supportive of the recording since its release in early May, 2011.
- Recently, Steve was asked to participate in guitarist Adam Levy's survey, "13 QUESTIONS." The long list of participants, answering Adam's inventive questions, includes: Bill Frisell; Steve Cárdenas; Mark Goldenberg; Charlie Hunter; and, of course, the author himself!!! Hoping that everyone will take a moment to peruse the site and read Steve's responses as well as those of his colleagues.
- On Monday, May 24th, Steve will be the guest of both Rick Such and Eddy Cabello as Inside Musicast presents an hour-long interview, including songs that span the scope of Steve's recording career. The podcast will be archived from that date forward, and anyone can then access the interview. Many thanks to both Rick and Eddy for their meticulous preparation and for the fun and energetic dialog that took place that evening.
Not long after Steve's interview aired, Rick and Eddy presented a wonderful interview with Rob Mounsey. Hoping that everyone will get to hear both!!!
- NOW AVAILABLE!!! In 2008, we announced that Tone Center Records(U.S./Canada), ESC Records(Germany/Europe), and 55 Records(Japan) had all released the double "live" CD titled: "THE SUITCASE." Needless to say, it was very exciting to see this finally happen!
This incredible recording features Steve alongside Anthony Jackson(Contrabass Guitar) and Dennis Chambers(Drums) and was recorded on the last night of their European Tour on May 17th, 1994. The recording took place as part of a live radio broadcast for WDR as the trio performed at Stadtgarten Club in Köln, Germany. Recorded digitally and direct to a 2-track master, the CDs feature truly remarkable performances from all three players, but, it is easy to recognize that these are historic representations of the art of both Anthony Jackson and Dennis Chambers. What takes place on the nearly 18-minute version of Joe Henderson's "Caribbean Fire Dance" will be talked about for a long, long time. Anthony Jackson's solo 'prelude' to the title track is also a truly outstanding moment.
Once again, the CD is graced by a beautiful 'suitcase' image from Jean-Michel Folon which makes this package extra special for Steve. The release of this now legendary concert is not without a rather remarkable story. Please take a moment, click on the cover image link, and read about it. Some details have been left out to protect the innocent!
For anyone who is interested in reading the Reviews and Press, you can now access them on a separate page via the above link. Thanks to everyone from the public, radio programmers, and press who have been so supportive of the recording since its release.
As the year comes to an end, "THE SUITCASE" was just named one of the BEST JAZZ CDs OF 2008 by allaboutjazz.com's senior writer, John Kelman. We are, of course, most appreciative of this honor!
- The Grammy nominated "BORROWED TIME" was released on June 5th, and since the first reviews had been published, the reaction to the recording from the music critics seemed to be pretty unanimous in favor of Steve's latest work. For anyone who is interested in reading the Reviews and Press, you can now access them on a separate page via the above link. Thanks to everyone from the public, radio programmers, and press who have been so supportive of the recording since its release.
- But, before we get to the reviews, please make certain that you read STEVE'S PERSONAL REFLECTIONS on all the tunes from "BORROWED TIME." When this new column, "In the Artist's Own Words" was launched during 2006 by allaboutjazz.com, the very first feature was Steve's Personal Reflections on all the tunes from "THE GREEN FIELD." In both cases, they were originally written to give some personal and historical perspective for what were to be the Japanese liner notes, it is now hoped that everyone can benefit from reading just what went into both of these wonderful recordings.
Though its release in early 2006 seems like such a long time ago, "THE GREEN FIELD" sessions from May 23rd & 24th, 2005 still remain fresh in the memory.
The last of the recorded tracks from those sessions, "Dreamsville" written by the great Henry Mancini, will still have to sit and await a new opportunity for a release as there just was not any room for it to fit on either of the last two CDs. Right now, it's hard to imagine just how that one isolated track could fit somewhere else.
For those of you who are still interested in reading the Interviews and Press associated with this release, you can now access them on a separate page via the above link.
Not to be redundant, but, another very popular feature has been "STEVE'S PERSONAL REFLECTIONS" on the recording, and those are available via the wonderful allaboutjazz.com website.
- For those of you who have been asking about and requesting videos or DVDs, finally there is something that you can see on YouTube. For years I have had two VHS cassettes sitting in a DVD case and basically just collecting dust. They come from a concert that was recorded on February 7th, 1992 at New York's then very famous club, The Bottom Line. On that night, the trio consisted of Jay Anderson(Ac. Bass) and Ben Perowsky(Drums). We had been logging miles together as trio, along with some other great bassists and drummers for a few years and a nice chemistry had developed by the time we did this particular gig. Looking back, it's ironic that "HEADLINE" had been recorded just 3 weeks prior to this concert.
Recently, through the website, I had received several e-mails, mostly from Europe, from fans telling me that they now had bootleg audio versions of this concert, which included 14 tunes over 2 sets. I had no idea that anyone could have found these things because the videos were done for a production company in Japan. I have actually never even seen these performances, as I don't like watching such things. However, it was because of these e-mails that I decided to seek out the help of my good friend and renowned video artist/editor, Phil Fallo to make an artistic transfer from the VHS format to DVD. I, of course, kept both Jay and Ben 'in the loop' about our progress in doing this. We decided that we would have my webmaster, Blaine Fallis, upload four(4) tunes to YouTube and see what happens. So now, you can watch and listen to the following tunes via these links: "Tyrone" which appeared on the "HEADLINE" CD. "Masqualero" which appeared on the "LET'S CALL THIS" CD. "Gee Baby Ain't I Good To You" which I have never recorded, and we rarely ever played this one live. It is my little tribute to Kenny Burrell. And finally, "Caribbean Fire Dance" which appears on both "HEADLINE" and now "THE SUITCASE."
From a purely historical perspective, I suppose that it's interesting to note that "CROSSINGS" was recorded just two years later. And, "THE SUITCASE" was recorded on tour just after that. Jay, Ben and I hope that everyone will enjoy seeing these videos.
- I suppose that, sooner or later, everything just catches up to you. A fan from Europe wrote and asked me if I had seen myself on YouTube. My answer was: "Of course not!" So, I clicked on the link which he had sent, and suddenly I was taken back to May 11th, 1990, when I taped a local public access cable TV show called: "THE GUITAR SHOW" for my good friend, and neighbor, Christian Roebling. Over the years, he probably did shows with 100+ guitarists, some legendary, some less so. When the show no longer aired, he tried to find someone to put them out in DVD format, but those efforts initially failed.
Now, Stefan Grossman is about to release various performances from this series in DVD. Lucky me, my performances of both Larry Young's "Backup" and my own tune, "Dr. Slump" will be part of "JAZZ MASTERS: VOLUME ONE" of the DVD packages. Also featured on this very special DVD will be Pat Martino and Bill Frisell, obviously both great artsits, respected colleagues, and good friends. Stefan recently was kind enough to send me the still photo portrait lifted from the video. Before having seen it on the back of the DVD package, I had never seen this shot. It's nice to be able to share it here for the first time.
- KHAN'S KORNER which is divided into KORNER
1 and KORNER 2 to better
serve all our visitors. KORNER 1, which
now has 76 hand-written
solo transcriptions, offers classic solos by: Miles Davis, Jim Hall, Grant Green, Wes Montgomery, Freddie Hubbard, Herbie Hancock, Stanley Turrentine, Clare Fischer, Pat Martino, Kenny Burrell, Paul Desmond, George Benson, George Coleman, Steve Grossman, John Scofield, Gabor Szabo, Leonardo Amuedo, and Robben Ford, plus corresponding
Here we are, and February of 2013 has arrived? It is with great pleasure that we are offering Steve Grossman's fantastic solo that appeared on the 1971 Miles Davis album, A TRIBUTE TO JACK JOHNSON(Columbia). This 3-minute plus exploration of what one can do over a static Bb7(sus) chord, when accompanied by: Herbie Hancock, John McLaughlin, Michael Henderson and Billy Cobham, gives cause for great thought and study. If you haven't heard this before, pay special attention to it now!!!
Hoping to lift the spirits of those musically inclined, we present to you Pat Martino's swingin' 2-chorus solo over the Cole Porter standard, "It's All Right With Me," which appears on the 1977 Willis Jackson album, BAR WARS(Muse). Accompanied by organist Charles Earland and drummer Idris Muhammad, this particular solo would have been part of a 2nd Volume for Steve's book, "PAT MARTINO - The Early Years" but alas, it was not to be.
There is a nice chill in the air as October arrives, and to keep things warm and cozy, we are offering Steve Khan's wonderful 1/2-chorus solo over a Clare Fischer classic composition, "San Francisco, P.M.," which appears on the just released album ¡RITMO!(Clavo) by the Clare Fischer Latin Jazz Big Band led by Clare's beloved and devoted son, bassist/arranger, Brent Fischer. Of course, there's a lovely story that accompanies the transcription, and which is shared in Steve's analysis. There's a good reason why this tune was chosen to open the album, and why Steve's solo is the first one as well! Don't miss this one!!!
KORNER 2 continues to house the lead sheets and arrangements to Steve's originals. During 2011, we presented Steve's seven new compositions from "PARTING SHOT." For May, our first presentation will be, "Change Agent." This will be followed by: June, "Los Gaiteros"; July, "María Mulambo"; August, "Influence Peddler"; September "When She's Not Here" October, "Zancudoville"; And finally, during November, "Just Deserts," a spectacular Latin percussion descarga was the feature. If you missed them then? Don't worry, they're still there and easy to access.

- As it always is with all the time spent "on the road," there are stories
to tell. And so, here are some of Steve's recent stories Old News: the lovely, the comical, the tragic, and the triumphant.
- A couple of years ago, during a weekend in late December, the one between Christmas and New Year's Eve, a conversation with dear friends, musicians, inspired me to write in my blog at my MySpace page. Soon, not 24 hrs. after it had been posted, I was overwhelmed by the response to what I had written. And so, I decided to post a version of the piece here which benefits from the addition of some photos and additional writing and editing.
Though the piece is titled, "A DESTINATION - NEVER AN ARRIVAL" and is focused on the artistic life, a life in the arts, the central anecdote, that shapes it all, centers around a portion of an interview which took place between Dick Cavett and the Academy Award winning British actor, Sir Laurence Olivier during the early '70s, just after I had moved to New York. It has become a moment that I have used in countless situations: with private students, at clinics, seminars, and master classes, and, in any serious discussion of what it means to live a creative life in the arts. If you have a few moments, I will hope that you will find something of value when reading this ESSAY.
- And speaking of "old" - If you like, you can read Steve's essay titled: "On Turning 60" which was originally written for his blog at the recently launched MySpace 'tribute' page, one which was actually designed, and is now maintained, by Iain Grimwood from "across the pond" in the U.K.! Thanks so much Iain!!!
- For those of
you who might have missed Steve's heartfelt tributes to Ray Charles,
Elvin Jones, Jimmy Smith, Steve Marcus, Jean-Michel Folon, Wilson Pickett, Ray Barretto, from the world of sports, Arnold "Red" Auerbach, James Brown, Michael Brecker, Joe Zawinul, Tim Russert, Gary King, Joe Beck, Isaac Hayes, Freddie Hubbard, my close childhood friend Kim Weiskopf, Jacques Braunstein, Alan Rubin, one of my harmonic heroes, pianist-composer-arranger, Clare Fischer, and just now, two close friends, the great guitarist Hugh McCracken, and the brilliant recording engineer/producer Phil Ramone, we have created a special
TRIBUTES page. We hope
that you will enjoy reading about these very special musicians/artists who
recently left us.
- Just after November 4th, 2008, when Barack Obama was elected to become our President. While so much of the rest of our world was rejoicing in our choice of a leader, I extended my congratulations to President Obama, as well as to our new First Lady, Michelle Obama, and their daughters, Malia Ann and Sasha.
Once his election was a reality, I wrote an ESSAY which detailed my thoughts and observations. These were obviously solely my thoughts alone, and some of them might have resonated with some of you, and others might not have found them to be so agreeable. No matter what, it was the dawning of a new day, a new age, and hopefully better times ahead for everyone!!! Perhaps, dare I say it, an even better world for everyone!!!
- We are now pleased to announce the addition of another new page, created for those of
you who might have missed Steve's tales of: THE LOST TELECASTER CUSTOM; or, the incredible
AIR-CONDITIONER REMOVAL DISASTER; or, the popular but very terrifying HOLIDAY INN FIRE. And so, we have created a special
AMAZING TALES page. We hope
that you will enjoy reading about these "Theater of the Absurd" Events, but all too true!!! Believe me!!!
- And, as if that's not enough, we have given Steve's BRUSHES WITH GREATNESS its very own page too. Read what can happen when just walking around in one's neighborhood on the streets of New York. What a town!
- Para aquellos de ustedes que han estado pidiendo otra ENTREVISTA en Español, aquí está. Aunque originalmente fue hecha en Inglés, ha sido traducida por mi querido amigo, el ingeniero industrial y periodista de Jazz, Felipe Díaz, de Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, España. Esperamos que todos disfruten de su lectura.
Originally, this INTERVIEW was done by guitarist Igor Grigoriev, who sadly passed away not too long ago, and way before his time. Hopefully everyone will take a moment to read Steve's honest and insightful answers to some interesting questions.
- With the recent publication of Walter Kolosky's very fine book, Power, Passion & Beauty: The Story of the Legendary Mahavishnu Orchestra, I have started to receive e-mails about my small contribution. However, as what I wrote was edited and then spread-out over various chapters, I wanted to share with everyone the full text, just as I wrote it. So, now you can read my personal "Mahavishnu Orchestra" reflection. I hope that you will enjoy it.
- As we have now passed the five year anniversary of September 11th, 2001, Steve has taken the time to write his own personal story, which he has titled, "Where I was on 9/11." For most people, and certainly virtually every American, there is a personal recollection of exactly where they were, and just what they doing at the moment when they learned that New York and Washington, D.C. were under terrorist attack. No matter with whom one might be speaking, this always makes for an interesting conversation. We hope that you all will enjoy reading Steve's story of that morning, that day.
- George Cole has written a fantastic new book titled, "THE LAST MILES"(The Music of Miles Davis 1980-1991)[University of Michigan Press]. As a part of this project, George conducted a very honest Interview with Steve regarding his participation in Miles' recording, "AMANDLA" and all the various stories and feelings surrounding that experience. Enjoy the interview, and if you are a Miles Davis fan, the book is a must have!!!
It was not so long ago that the Jazz Community at large suffered a huge loss in our access to the ears of the public when Russ Davis' fantastic Beyond Jazz program had its bright light turned off by XM Satellite Radio. Since that time, thanks to his tireless dedication to the music, Russ has launched a new radio vehicle on the Internet, and we are proud and happy to advise everyone who visits these pages about this glorious news. Russ has brought with him all the wonderful features that he used to present to his loyal listeners. So, even when I would prefer not to remember my birthday, Russ' program is always there with a special birthday salute!!!
And so, in his own words, here's a personal message from Russ Davis, as he introduces a series of special broadcasts related to release of "PARTING SHOT":
"This Monday, April 25th, on MOJA Radio, we will present another BIRTHDAY edition of our special feature, MONDAY WITH THE MASTERS on MOJA Radio. This time the focus is on one of the most important guitarists in jazz today, STEVE KHAN, just three days before his actual birthday on April 28th. You'll hear all about his beginnings in Los Angeles, his move to New York City during the fusion era to work with The Brecker Brothers, the beginnings of his solo career, his contribution to the fusion era, his love of Latin music, and of course hear a full hour of his brilliant music. Listen for MONDAY WITH THE MASTERS twice every Monday, at 12 Noon EDT/9 AM PDT, with a replay Monday night at 9 PM EDT/6 PM PDT, and this week we place our spotlight on the great, STEVE KHAN!
Every Thursday at 9 AM EDT/6 AM PDT with a replay at 9 PM EDT/6 PM PDT, and twice again on Sundays at 10 AM & 10 PM EDT, I'll be giving you an hour of nothing but the freshest MOJA on THE ALL NEW MUSIC REVUE. As part of our weeklong celebration of Steve Khan's birthday, MOJA will give you cuts from his new album "PARTING SHOT" featuring Steve and his usual All-Star cast of players, and even his first recorded vocal performance!
Every Friday, beginning at 7 AM until midnight EDT, we begin each hour with a classic piece of Jazz Fusion history on our special feature IF IT'S FRIDAY, THIS MUST BE FUSION. This Friday, April 29th, is the day after the great guitarist Steve Khan's birthday, and we'll celebrate that fact with a special feature we call "STEVE KHAN'S GREATEST FUSION HITS." You will hear Steve's great solo albums like "TIGHTROPE"; "THE BLUE MAN"; "ARROWS"; "EVIDENCE"; "EYEWITNESS" and "CASA LOCO" as well as his legendary collaborations with greats like: Billy Cobham on the album "INNER CONFLICTS"; Steely Dan on "GAUCHO"; David Sanborn's debut release "TAKING OFF" and, as a member of The Brecker Brothers Band on albums like: "BACK TO BACK" and "DON'T STOP THE MUSIC." It is "STEVE KHAN'S GREATEST FUSION HITS" on this week's edition of: IF IT'S FRIDAY, THIS MUST BE FUSION.
This Saturday, April 30th, we will continue our birthday celebration of one of MOJA's greats, as we present our weekly feature, WORDS & MUSIC on MOJA Radio. It seems that whenever Steve Khan has a new album release, it coincides with his birthday, and since April 28th has come again, Steve invited me to sit down in his apartment on the Upper West Side of Manhattan to talk about this brilliant new album, that just may be as fine a work as he's ever created. You'll hear the stories of the trials, tribulations, and triumphs of his work with old pals Anthony Jackson, Dennis Chambers, Marc Quiñones, Bobby Allende and Manolo Badrena, plus special guests like: Rob Mounsey and Tatiana Parra(Brazil) & Andrés Beeuwsaert(Argentina). Interview segments, followed by all the songs from this great new album will begin each hour from 12 Noon through Midnight EDT (9 AM-9 PM PDT). Join us for "STEVE KHAN: PARTING SHOT" on this week's WORDS & MUSIC."
Russ Davis' fantastic programs are also presented as his "JAZZ AMERICA" show airs on VOICE OF AMERICA, Saturday from 1-3 AM EDT(11 PM-1 AM PDT, Friday night into Saturday morning), and Sunday from 9-11 AM EDT(6-9 AM PDT).
As I continue to say, I can't thank Russ enough for all his support over the many years. Personally, I will always be wishing him every success that there can be. If you can possibly lend your support to this great adventure in radio, it will truly serve the greater good!!! Thank you!!!
- Believe it or not, 10 years ago, during September, 1998, this website was launched by Blaine Fallis with graphic design consultations from his beloved wife Youngsuk. I can only say that, having this website has truly changed my life, and, in so many ways, made it better. The unexpected contact with people all over the world has been so inspiring that it has probably not only saved my career, but sustained it. And, in a far better way than I could have initially imagined. So, in addition to my unbounded gratitude to each and every one of you who regularly visit these pages, I want to express my most sincere appreciation to Blaine & Youngsuk for all that they taught me about helping them to manage these pages, and for their spectacular contributions to the look and the feel of the website. In that spirit, this is simply to say:

for allaboutjazz.com! It's a very comprehensive look inside the artist.
- Check out this past
KHAN INTERVIEW done with Souvik Dutta for his Abstract
Logix site. We're certain that you'll find Steve's answers most
- John Irizarry just asked
Steve to write an article for his website on the topic of: "What's
the difference between Salsa
and Latin Jazz?" Never one to shy away from a challenge,
Steve did his 'blanquito best' to try and answer the question in a
manner in which, perhaps, everyone could understand. And, while trying
to de-mystify the question, he tells one of his favorite "jazz jokes."
You won't want to miss that!!!
- NOW AVAILABLE! "PENTATONIC
KHANCEPTS" The book is now at the warehouse, and in stores

have appeared in major magazines for years. Just posted, see Ned Shaw's
latest ONLINE GALLERY.
- A selected DISCOGRAPHY.
When visiting this page, simply click on any of the mini-CD covers
and this will take you to a page where you can read Steve's personal
reflections of each recording.
- A quirky list
of STEVE'S FAVORITES, and perhaps,
dare I say it, even more than you wanted to know regarding his favorite
movies, flower, most annoying insect, best shaving advice from Dad!
And, his favorite news people, least favorite athlete, and his rants against "Info-tainment"! You get the picture.
resolved! Steve does NOT play solo Flamenco guitar in Greenwich
Village, New York City! It is just another guitarist with exactly,
well almost, the same name! Hard to believe, but true.
