Steve Kuhn Live in New York is a live album by American jazz pianist and composer Steve Kuhn recorded in 1972 and originally released on the Cobblestone label but rereleased as Raindrops on the Muse label.[1][2][3]

Reception[edit]

The Allmusic review by Ron Wynn awarded the album 3 stars stating "Pianist Steve Kuhn's greatest attributes are his steady, sometimes impressive phrasing and interpretative ability; his weak links are a less than intense rhythmic capability and a derivative style. That's overcome on this session mainly because he's playing with a sympathetic rhythm section".[4]
