A continuation of my last CD, Raw, which was inspired by American music from the 30s and 40s. Medium Rare takes us on a memory trip through the 50s and 60s. Both CDs are a fun trip for young and old alike. This music is what we call Americana Funk. Enjoy.
Americana Funk draws on riffs and licks from Classic Rock, Early R&B, Blues and Country that we wrap in Contemporary Soul Jazz creating a new, fresh "sound" that is yet familiar (to we older set)!
It'a a lot of fun and you're sure to enjoy it. Thanks for listening.

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
