Steve Christofferson Steve Christofferson

Steve Christofferson started out as a garage-band guitarist but he picked up the keyboard after hearing the “White Album”. Steve has played the piano in nightclubs and jazz festivals around the world with Nancy King, toured Europe with the Alan Jones Sextet, and performed in China with Mia Nicholson. He's worked with Jim Pepper, Kurt Elling, Karrin Allyson and many others. Steve is heard on recordings with Nancy King, The Metropole Orchestra and Skol Brothers, the electric quintet that features his compositions.

He's been described as “one of the Northwest's most inventive pianists,” (Willamette Week) with “a deft, lyrical touch and fevered imagination.” (Victoria Times-Colonist) His trio is “focused, a very cohesive group capable of exploring standards and lesser-known jazz pieces with a soul and drive that hearkens all the way back to Monk, Garner and Bud Powell.” (Cadence Magazine) His originals are “among the best compositions you'll hear on the local scene,” (Dan DePrez) and David Frishberg says “Steve gets a great sound and plays with real authority and impeccable taste; he's one of my favorite piano players.”

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
