Cool Music

I call my music "Americana Funk", a retro salute to the early days when music was created here and not imported from Europe. This music has evolved into what we know today as Rock & Roll, R&B, Country, Jazz, Soul, Folk and Blues. I go back to those beginnings for solos and riffs and wrap it all up in contemporary Jazz for cool modern sounds with a touch of nostalgia to them. I draw on my experience as a drummer and bandleader (1958 - 1972), producer (1970 - 2000), and digital music composer and music arranger (2005 - present). I put everything I know and love into this music and sincerely hope you enjoy the groove. Poppa Steve
