In 1979 Mike Mainieri formed Steps (which later became Steps Ahead), an all-star jazz oriented R&B band that originally included such players as Mike Brecker, Don Grolnick, Eddie Gomez and Steve Gadd in its line-up.

Now Steps’ groundbreaking debut CD has been rereleased as a 2-CD set with three previously unreleased ‘bonus tracks’ and alternate takes which were just recently discovered in the musician’s personal tape collections.
