Saxophonist, brother of Carl Grubbs, and first cousin of Naima Coltrane. Best known as one half of duo The Visitors, along with his brother Carl. In Groups: The Visitors (10). The Visitors (10), Earl Grubbs, Carl Grubbs - Neptune (LP, Album, RE). Muse Records.
Earl and Carl were the brothers of Juanita Grubbs, who married John Coltrane and took the name "Naima". I heard The Visitors play on Father's Day, 1971 at Temple University. They were on an amazing bill with Gil Scott-Heron and Donny Hathaway. The Visitors were the second performers to play that night, but their music is what stayed with me long, long after that night. Their playing, their beauty, and grace on stage was unmatched. 3 years ago. Naima was their first cousin. I was a close friend of Earl's and was around when this album was being composed.

The Visitors, Earl and Carl Grubbs, were cousins of John Coltrane by marriage. The Coltrane influence is there; but they move beyond it. For a while, in the 70s, it seemed like every saxophone had to pay homage to Coltrane but trying to play like. The album In My Youth, was a sign that great jazz saxophones were breaking free of the mindset that they had to play like Coltrane. The cuts In My Youth, The Visit, and Mood Seeks are outstanding. Each of them by themselves is worth the price of the album. 3 people found this helpful.
