Steve Khan (born April 28, 1947) is an American jazz guitarist. He is known for his work with artists such as Steely Dan, Billy Joel, Michael Franks, Hubert Laws, Billy Cobham, Jack DeJohnette, James Brown, Maynard Ferguson, and Weather Report.
A native of Los Angeles, California, and the son of lyricist Sammy Cahn, Steve Khan took up the guitar when he was 20, having previously played piano and drums. He graduated from UCLA and moved to New York City, where he worked as a studio musician in pop, rock, jazz, and rhythm and blues, with such acts as Steely Dan, Maynard Ferguson, and Lou Rawls. He recorded a duet album with guitarist Larry Coryell and was a member of the Brecker Brothers band.
In 1977, he toured with the CBS Jazz All Stars in Japan, and led a band called Eyewitness that featured musicians such as Steve Jordan, Anthony Jackson and Manolo Badrena. From the 1980s through to the present, he has become the foremost proponent of the guitar in Latin Jazz. With the releases of "Parting Shot"(2011); "Subtext"(2014); and "Backlog"(2016), he created what the role of the guitar could be in Latin Jazz.
