    My gawd I loved this record. Steve Khan 'Tightrope'. I had the LP back in the early 80's. I had just gotten into jazz and the bartender at the golf and country club I worked at in Toronto sold me 50 jazz LP's for $100....he had a huge collection. Steve Khan 'Tightrope' was one of those records. I listened to it a lot.

    Pretty decent lineup..... :)

    I am not sure why I ever picked up his album Some Arrows ('79ish), but I am glad I did. Loved the sound and vibe he recorded. Easily overlooked guitar great.

    Great player and awesome lineup of musicians. Some of the creme de la creme of the ‘70s session/jazz fusion scene.

    It's great. I would say, sound wise, it's a record 'of it's time'....the guitar effects etc. certainly date it but I think it's still very relevant and stands the test of time because the compositions and the playing are all excellent.

    That record reminds me going to the NAAM show in California around 1980-81. The Peavey booth would blast Eric Gale, Steve Kahn and Cornell Dupree. Went home and bought albums bu all three.

    He's the son of noted lyricist, Sammy Cahn. He fed material to the Rat Pack.

    He played on Gaucho. He took piano lessons as a child & started playing drums, later switching to guitar.

    That's right! He had some genetic and environmental predisposition to his talents.

    Do you know where he was based? I'm thinking New York.
