Jeremy Steig

In his entire career as an improvisational flutist Steig has challenged the boundaries of conventional categories in music. In his first album Flute Fever (Columbia Records 1963) Steig established himself as one of the most important voices in contemporary music, setting new standards in the performance and appreciation of the flute as improvisational instrument.

Steig's openness to all kinds of music is the key that attracts audience to his music. In his newest CD, Steig teams up as a duo with the prominent guitarist and composer, Vic Juris. Their collaboration covers everything from jazz, blues, rock, free music and even some classical pieces that have been reworked to include improvisation. Improvised, Steig and Juris' first CD together, is a dynamic sonic adventure. They have been invited to the 2004 Yokohama Jazz Promenade, one of the biggest jazz festivals held in Japan.
