I could have sworn I had featured Euge Groove already, but it doesn’t seem I have. Let’s fix that.
Saxophonist Steven Eugene Grove, better known as Euge Groove, didn’t issue his eponymous solo album until 2000, but he had played for a few years with Tower of Power after Richard Elliot went solo. He also did session work for a number of pop acts, most notably the girl group Exposé. He has recorded 11 studio albums and appeared on albums by Elton John, Huey Lewis & The News, Richard Marx, Bonnie Raitt, Richard Elliot, Peter White and others.
From his most recent album, 2017’s Groove On!, the title track.
From 2005’s Just Feels Right, “Chillaxin'”.
His website tells us he’ll be in Philadelphia at the South Kitchen and Jazz Parlor this Thursday and Friday and in Cleveland Heights, Ohio in Cain Park with Kirk Whalum, Peter White, and Jonathan Butler this Saturday. You can follow him on Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and Spotify.
