Album Review

Tenor saxophonist Steve Grossman, who played with Miles Davis' electric group in the early 1970s, is very much in a Sonny Rollins vein throughout this excellent trio outing with bassist Juni Booth and drummer Joe Chambers. The title is a play on Rollins' classic Way Out West album, although most of the material (which includes "Trane's Slow Blues," "Soul Trane" and "Like Someone In Love") actually belongs more to the John Coltrane songbook. Grossman's tone echoes Rollins while also hinting at his own developing personality, and his improvisations are consistently impressive.
