Steve Khan

Biography

In the '70s, Khan made his living mostly as a sideman, playing with a who's who of Fusion greats, adding his watery chords and sleek Bebop licks to many classic albums by artists such as the Brecker Brothers, Bob James, Steely Dan, Billy Cobham and Blood Sweat & Tears, otherwise known as the factory for Fusion guitarists. Like peers John Scofield and John Abercrombie, Khan has had an opportunity to explore his solo voice in the '80s and beyond, continuing to explore Fusion but also proving his talent as a fiery Bop player -- Khan doesn't need distortion to make his guitar soar. His 1980 album Evidence gained critical appreciation with it's tasty solo explorations of the music of Thelonious Monk, while more recent albums like Got My Mental put Khan in a pleasantly introspective Post Bop format with drummer Jack DeJohnette and bassist John Patitucci on hand for the improvisations.
