If you can lay your gat down long enough to rid your CD player of that south central gangsta hip hop, you might find a little salvation by loading Euge Groove. Steve Grove is the Euge Groove monster, and he has mastered the alluring saxophone via soprano, tenor, or alto. His horns here are not revolutionary but there not pushovers either. Instead you’ll find a non-threatening mutha that you know can kick some ass! “Lay It Down” and “Summer Stroll” are my favorites, but any one of these ten songs can easily be yours. Forget the gang bangin’ and get hangin’ with the mad chillin’ Euge Groove!
