It has been a great pleasure for me to have a chance to collaborate with Steve Khan on his first solo album. I was constantly amazed at his knowledge of the entire spectrum of music. Steve's music signals a new era in jazz, combining the best elements of his rock, jazz & progressive background.

You have the magic of Steve Khan and the Brecker Brothers coming together. Khan's compositions are smooth yet lively enough not to bore. His unique drive, and pristine flourish and tone on his modded Fender Telecaster, and even his deft acoustic work, all come together to make a very satisfying blend of sexy jazz and funked-up, be bop fusion. If you listen closely, you will hear Larry.

Tightrope (Steve Khan album). Bob James who just got him signed to Columbia Records produced the album for his own Tappan Zee label, a sub-division of Columbia. All other musicians were (at some point) members of the Brecker Brothers band including Kahn himself who was part of the band in the years just before his solo debut and was featured on their second album, the 1976 Back to Back and the following Don't Stop the Music

Steve Khan (born April 28, 1947) is an American jazz guitarist. According to Steve Khan, his father, lyricist Sammy Cahn, "loved to hear of any and all versions of his songs". Thus Khan grew up in a house with music. He took piano lessons as a child and played drums for the surf rock band the Chantays. The band's guitarist exposed him to the albums Tough Talk by the Crusaders and Movin' Wes by Wes Montgomery. In his late teens he quit the drums and started playing guitar.

You can totally tell that this is a Bob James production. It's not bad at all, and don't get me wrong, James has done some great stuff. But you can also see why Steve Khan made no more Tappan Zee records, even though staying there probably would have guaranteed him more commercial success.Being a Bob James production, it's far more dated than any other Khan record. It's also got a tighter, more pop-oriented sound, complete with goofy melodies and disco beats. Khan's signature guitar sound is there, but it seems to be less center-stage than his other recordings.
