Guitarist Steven Kirby combines richly textured lyrical jazz with exciting modern compositions and stellar musicianship.
This performance is a mix of Steven's albums "Illuminations" and "North Light" (on Spotify). It's both straight ahead modern jazz mixed with a strong ECM studios' influence in which melody and lyricism are still high priorities. It features a mix of original compositions, and some creative arrangements of standard tunes.
Kirby’s compositions have won awards in the International Songwriting Competition, the Billboard Song Contest and Downbeat. His music has been played on over 100 radio stations in the US and internationally including features on NPR’s "Here and Now", "Jazz with Bob Parlocha" and "Eric in the Evening".
