Of course, Steve has made thousands of recordings. So, i decided to pull out some tunes from my library and attach 15 very short clips, to see how many of these tunes people will actually recognize. All the clips are song intros.

Now i will admit that "most" of these tunes will be hard to recognize, so if anyone gets at least 3 of these tunes, i will be very impressed :)

hard to hear....

1.brecker brothers - night flight
2. Herbie Mann - Dicotheque - Hijack
4. michel petruciani - Chimes
5. al di meola - casino
7. gomez - metwo or mezga
