Steve Khan's "Eyewitness" (Anthony Jackson)

Discussion in 'Recordings [BG]' started by Peter McFerrin, Dec 21, 2001.


  1. I didn't want to revive any old threads, so I'll just say this here:

    Brad, JimK, thanks for the recommendation. Not only are AJ's basslines as killer as I expected, but the music itself is pretty tight. I'd actually like to do a version of "Where's Mumphrey?" with the fusion group that I'm trying to get together (knowing my luck, it won't happen :rolleyes: ).

    Which discs did you pick up?
    BTW, the post-Eyewitness stuff that Steve Khan put out under his name(though Jackson & Chambers appear on them)are also very good. I'm thinking Crossings may be OOP...that one is one of my favorites.
    Khan's Got My Mental(w/ Patitucci on URB & DeJohnette on cans)is also pretty decent(I saw this one at the store today!).

    Steve's a very nice guy!

    What Jim said. I have "Crossings", it came out in 94. If it is OOP that's a shame, it's one of my favorites, too. I've been into Steve's playing since the Brecker Bros. stuff, I even have "Tightrope" on wax.

    That's what I love about this group, it reminds me of what I should be digging out in the basement ;). It also reminds me not to keep 100 of my harder to find CDs in my car anymore:(

    In another vein, check AJ out with Michel Camilo, particularly the trio work with Dave Weckl. It still kills me.

    I absolutely loved the "Public Access" album those guys put out for GRP a while back. Perfect ensemble: two guitarists, two percussionists.
