Some Shapes To Come [PM, 1974]
Terra Firma [PM, 1977]
Some Shapes To Come - Beautifully choppy jazz from Steve Grossman and his legendary 70s comrades Gene Perla and Don Alias -- one of the heaviest hitting American combos of the time! The trio have a tight fusion sound that's as full-on as it is funky -- and Grossman blows some amazing work on tenor and soprano sax that cut into the tunes with a really fierce bite! For this session, the group's joined by Jan Hammer on electric piano and moog, playing in a nicely restrained fashion that's not nearly as overblown as his later work, and which jams into the groove just perfectly.
