One of my favorite bands! "N.Y.C." was my first intro to the band. I still pull out the title song as a demo once and awhile. Do you have the live DVD? Quite good as well.
I'm a big Steps Ahead (originally called Steps when formed my Mike Mainieri) fan and have 10 of their cds in my collection. The self titled cd I have is one I burned from my original vinyl album because I missed the orginal release of this cd in 1996. It looks like it got re-released in 2005 too. This band likes to experiment and they lead me to find bands like Yellowjackets, UZEB, Uncle Festive, ZZAH, Passport, Brecker Brothers, Vital Information and so many more artists and bands.
Does anyone have one of the earlier releases of this CD? If so how do they sound?
