Albums Featuring - Carl Grubbs

Brother Soul - Carl Grubbs (Saxophone), Salim Washington (Saxophone),

Steve Neil (Bass), Ronnie Burrage (Drums)

For a man whose life has not always been easy, Carl Grubbs' music often resonates joy and optimism. On this recording he resurrects the 2-sax front line that he made so notable with The Visitors, the group he co-led with his late brother, Earl. Salim Washington, another under documented saxman, joins the front line on a program that revisits some of the best of the Grubbs Brothers' compositions along with some fine new works and a jaunty cover of "Smile." Recorded June 20 & 21, 2005. Catalog Number: CIMP 336

Stepping Around the Giant - Carl Grubbs (Alto Saxophone), Odean Pope (Tenor Saxophone), Chris Sullivan (Bass), Newman Taylor Baker (Drums)

The liner notes tell the whole story about this date. Suffice it to say, those who have been waiting 30 years to hear the promise of Carl Grubbs to be met will have to look no further than this emotionally charged session. And if you're an Odean Pope fan, this is cause for a double amen. This was a very special occasion for all involved and it translates to the listener. Recorded July 30 & 31, 2002. Catalog Number: CIMP 303
