Reviews for In The G Zone:

“...a promising introduction to the Maine-based drummer/composer who won the 1994 Thelonious Monk Institute of Jazz/BMI Jazz Composers competition. He’s a sensitive, subtle accompanist and an interesting soloist. Grover skillfully creates settings that allow his soloists to shine...”-Downbeat

“Solid all the way.”- JazzTimes

“The real key to the program’s refulgence is uniformly outstanding statements…linked by a loose, surging approach directly reflecting, yet probing the compositional perimeters…The leader is likewise adroit, providing supple accompaniment and propulsion…”- Cadence
