Originally hailing from Brooklyn, NY (the next neighborhood over from where many amazing modern tenor saxophonists, including Bob Berg, Steve Grossman, Dave Leibman, and Eddie Daniels lived), Steve has resided in the San Francisco Bay Area since 1977. Steve has composed over 120 original jazz tunes, and has played with such notables as trumpeters Eddie Henderson, Howard McGhee, Chet Baker, and Tom Harrell; trombonists Roswell Rudd, Si Zentner, and Urbie Green; pianists Andrew Hill, Benny Green, Jessica Williams, Jim McNeely and George Cables; guitarists John Abercrombie, Cal Collins, Mimi Fox, and Bruce Foreman; drummers Eddie Moore, Billy Higgins, Donald Bailey, Helcio Melito and Pete Escovedo; and vocalists Jackie Ryan, Madeline Eastman, Kellye Gray, Buddy Connor, Frankye Kelly, and Fran Foston. His work has been praised by saxophonists as diverse as Stan Getz (“Beautiful”), Charles Lloyd (“A beautiful talent”), and Pharoah Sanders (“This cat can play!”)....
