Steve Lantner

Steve Lantner brings the disparate natures of a wide range of musical styles--free improvisation, jazz, contemporary chamber and microtonal music--together to create an all encompassing voice that is uniquely his.

He is known for his originality, energy, versatility and a style that places melody and harmony back on the improviser's palette alongside texture, velocity and abstraction.

Part of his pursuit is to find a new language that embraces the deep traditions of Jazz without picking one side or the other in its dichotomy--to establish a style that embraces the breadth of all the developments at our disposal.

His fertile imagination seems to explode with ideas that he can barely fit into the space provided. ~ Nils Jacobson - allaboutjazz.com

Steve Lantner's radiantly novel approach contains the stuff that provides the earmarks for a fruitful career....No doubt, Lantner is an inventor who pushes his craft to the limits....Essentially, they investigate the free zone but perform with the refinement and elegance of a seasoned and well-disciplined jazz piano trio. This wonderful outing should not slip into a state of secrecy! Compulsory listening! ~ Glenn Astarita - All About Jazz, 7/18/02
