Between Friends

In August of 2015 Steve Abshire and I played a live duo gig at 49 West in Annapolis. When recording engineer Med Canby heard we'd be playing in his hometown he asked our permission to record the gig. We were excited about the possibility of getting a live recording in a laid back atmosphere before a small yet attentive crowd. I think the mood of the evening came through nicely being informal, fun and relaxed. We felt little pressure in recording and we had a great time playing (and laughing) which I think you'll notice right away. Steve and I have been friends for a long time and I hope you enjoy our musical conversations from that night. - Steve Herberman

Ideals

I have been a big fan of Steve's for a number of years now. This new CD
captures his best playing to date. Recording a guitar trio CD requires a
good deal of preparation and requires the right bassist and drummer.   Bassist Tom Baldwin is one of the best of the new breed that I have heard in a number of years. He accompanies the trio flawlessly and has impeccable intonation and accuracy. Drummer Mark Ferber is one of the busiest players on the New York scene. He really understands the dynamic levels of the guitar and is extremely creative and supportive. I am fortunate to have an advance copy of this wonderful recording. Steve Herberman is the present and the future of jazz guitar.

Action:Reaction

This Steve Herberman CD is everything its title suggests and is truly something out of the ordinary. His compositions put a smile on your face and they feel "at home" right from the first listening. Each one has a mind of its own; all of this a major achievement for an album of original music. Steve's improvising is uniquely fresh with melodic ideas that twist and turn and perk your interest with occasional elements of humor as well. There is a constant groove in his solo lines. He shows prowess harmonically and linearly with an abundance of chops and with an exceptional clarity to it all. His fellow players Drew Gress and Mark Ferber are also brilliant soloists and display the same kind of ingenuity, creativity, freshness and response at all times. The trio maintains a general "cooking" quality throughout the entire recording.
