A piano soloist with an incredibly gentle and inspired sense of interpretation, Steve LaManna's perspective on music is best described by his own philosophical statement, included within the jacket of his second recording "For Friendship For You": "I believe that we truly share a friendship in music ... I believe in beauty, that it is real, that it is absolute, and that it brings us all together and makes us friends on a plane that transcends the realm of words and actions. Together we are building a dream that is more real and lasting than the world of stress and need that surrounds us." And...the feedback from Steve LaManna's listeners indicates that his way with music soothes the soul and inspires a renewal of good energy. Sound bytes from each of his piano solo albums can be explored on-line at his surprisingly beautiful web-site. The "Appreciation" page on Steve's website contains comments from listeners such as these - "Listening to you is so enjoyable, just beautiful - what warmth, passion, and resonance. Bravo." "A musician, artist and sculptor, Steve creates a serene mood with his music...soft melodic strains...in any season Steve's musical talent is just the right touch for a quiet evening's reflection...he flows seamlessly from show tunes, to Beatles, Billy Joel, folk, Christmas carols..." "Steve - If I could speak like you could play, I would be living in a white house not a yellow one." - Joe Biden, DE 1999 With Steve LaManna's piano solo, whether it be a composition by Cole Porter, Bob Dylan, Rodgers and Hart or Leonard Cohen, you, the listener, can sit back, relax and truly enjoy.....
