Steve Grossman Transcription Zulu Stomp – part 1

When it comes to playing outside the changes one of my favorite guys is Steve Grossman. A legend in his own right with an incredibly unique sound and approach to music, I’ve been transcribing him for years. This cut is from the Some Shapes to Come album, and features Gene Perla on Bass, Don Alias on drums, and Jan Hammer on keys.
