Live in Your Living Room
Steve Greene is a gifted musician whose voice is the guitar. As a composer he specializes in writing for modern dance companies. He has worked with the critically acclaimed Garth Fagen Dance and most recently with the Boston Dance Collective. He teaches, writes and performs regularly around Rochester and western NY. What stands out the most about Steve's playing though, is not just his skill on the instrument, but his rich, warm melodic tone. A sound that is not common today. Steve's playing possesses a quality that goes beyond his just playing a great sounding instrument. He consistently maintains a beautiful sound that transcends the guitar he chooses to play. Gene Bertoncini says, 'I love the sound that Steve gets from the guitar.' Tuck Andress says that Steve's music 'invites you into a world of openness and possibilities.' Steve and Gene Bertoncini have also just completed a CD of jazz standards as an acoustic duo. The disc will be available this Spring. Steve graciously spent a Sunday afternoon in March with this writer to play guitar, laugh and share some ideas about deep tones. - Eric Elias, 2000.
