Steve Grover

Drummer/composer Steve Grover was born February 26, 1956 in Lewiston, Maine. He studied with the excellent local jazz drummer and teacher Dick Demers, and after studying at Berklee and the University of Maine, Steve landed a gig with guitar legend Lenny Breau. Steve worked with him on and off for the next few years, learning the subtleties of small group interplay with a master musician. In 1979, Grover attended a program at The Creative Music Studio, the music school run by Karl Berger, which had such visiting artists as Oliver Lake, Julius Hemphill, Lee Konitz, Bob Moses, and other musicians. At CMS, Steve was exposed to the concepts of artists from the world of jazz, new music, and world music.

CD Between Now And After:

“It’s no exaggeration to say that every cut is a winner...There is a lot to hear, think about and enjoy on this great new CD from a Maine jazz master in his prime.” —Up Beat

CD The Garden Above:

“...every song on this album provides serious food for thought... In the title track, the melody line is so lyrically delivered you can almost hear a spoken word piece in the deep background... This trio prov[es] they’ve got a sense of adventure, and it’s that quality that makes this disc stand up to many repeated listens. You find something new every time.” —The Portland Phoenix
