NOTES
Jazz on the mellow side. This CD would be called smooth or chill by some, but I like to think of it as the softer side of Americana Funk. I draw from my years as a drummer and bandleader and infuse the early Rock, R&B, Blues and Pop we played with contemporary Jazz, which offers you some great modern tunes with a retro flavor you’ll no doubt recognize. Enjoy the groove.

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
