The music features a quintet comprised of David Wells, tenor saxophone; Tim Sessions, trombone; Tony Gaboury, guitar; Chris Van Voorst Van Beest, bass; and Steve Grover, drums. All of the compositions are originals written by Steve Grover, the 1994 winner of The Thelonious Monk Institute of Jazz Composers Competition. The music is rooted in the post-bop tradition with strong melodies and interesting, colorful harmony.
âItâs no exaggeration to say that every cut is a winner...There is a lot to hear, think about and enjoy on this great new CD from a Maine jazz master in his prime.â -Up Beat 4/07
In a recent review of a live performance by the Steve Grover Quintet, Steve Feeney wrote, âThe brass/reeds frontline gave the combo a varied voice, alternating unison lines with dialogues and musical squabblesâ¦Like the finest of drummer/bandleaders, [Groverâs] presence is felt at every moment of the music, providing a rhythmic environment of power and feeling.â-Maine Sunday Telegram 2/26/06
