EDIT
The Pace Report: "New York Homecoming State of Mind" The Steve Grossman Interview
AIRED:
New York native Steve Grossman returned to The Jazz Standard for a weeklong engagement that was years in the making. For almost 20 years he has made Italy his home and has made his second triumphant US comeback in less than a year. Steve?s playing is stronger and better than ever and his fans seemed to love him although he?s been off the music scene for quite sometime. I?m Brian Pace, coming up next on The Pace Report, my exclusive one-on-one interview with Steve Grossman. Welcome back to a special edition of the Pace Report, I?m Brian Pace. I had the wonderful opportunity to spend some time with saxophonist Steve Grossman while he played the Jazz Standard here in New York City. Grossman, a New York native, has been a force in jazz since his days playing with trumpeter Miles Davis and drummer Elvin Jones during the late 1960?s into the early 70?s. He replaced Wayne Shorter during Miles?s fusion phase while he was 18 years old. Grossman recorded legendary Miles recordings like ?A Tribute to Jack Johnson,? ?Miles at Fillmore,? and ?Evil Live.? Throughout his career he?s battled and almost lost his life to drug and alcohol abuse, but he?s stronger than ever putting his career in full steam. While on stage, Steve?s band was solid and his solos were impeccable. We sat down for his first one-on-one interview here in New York in over 10 years. He elaborated on his career and him returning to New York. Grossman?s band consists of Larry Willis on piano, John Webber on bass, and Joe Farnsworth on drums.Look for Steve Grossman?s new upcoming disc coming sometime next year.
