Steve Gundhi, R. I. P.


 A terrific musician and my friend Steve Gundhi finally lost his 10 year battle with diabetes and kidney failure this morning.

Steve
Gundhi (a.k.a. Gundy) was a close friend of Pharoah Sanders and had played with
him many times over the years, most recently at Yoshi’s in Oakland. They used
to run together in the early 60's (may have been late 50s?) and wound up living together for awhile in a
house in Oakland, CA that the residents called “The Big House”. Besides Steve and
Pharoah, others who lived and/or played and practiced at “The Big House” were
Michael White, Smiley Winters, Maurice Jackson, Manny Goldsmith, etc.
In addition to the above mentioned musicians Steve had
played with LeGrand Rogers (who he had an over 40 year musical association), John Tchicai, Dexter Gordon, Wes Montgomery, Monk Montgomery, John Hicks, Calvin Keys, Jim
Pepper, blues musician Charles Brown and many others.

Steve was a long time resident of Sacramento and is where he died.
