The American tenor saxophonist Steve Grossman flew to Japan to record this studio session that features an incredible line up of four local musicians: Takehiro Honda is on the piano with a rhythm section of Hideo Kawahara, Yasushi Yoneki, and Masahiro Yoshida, all working together with a tremendous energy. The recordings are dated February 1986, and include the eponymous Katonah, Afternoon in Paris (J. Lewis), and Friday the 13th (T. Monk).
It is worth remembering that Grossman started his journey to success at just eighteen by playing along with Miles Davis and Elvin Jones.
