Steve Giordano

Steve Giordano is a Philadelphia jazz guitarist in great company.

He has lived, learned, loved and played in the most evolutionary age of creative music in America. Early teachers were by way of radio and then 45 and LP records from the nineteen fifties. Giordano learned from the best: screaming guitar solos from Elvis Presley's guitarist Scotty Moore then lured to jazz by Dave Brubeck, Art Blakey's Jazz Messengers and John Coltrane. The first spoken jazz lesson was from a Columbia LP with Leonard Bernstein called What is Jazz.—every note of Wes Montgomery; then, Jim Hall. Illuminated by writings of Persechetti, Schillinger, and Hindemith. No traditional schooling, but all the best teachers.
