Steve Giordano, John Swana, Bob Meashey, Dave Posmentier (organ) & John Moseman
The past several years have proven incredibly fruitful for Giordano. He formed an ensemble known as the Steve Giordano Spacetet. The Spacetet is the culmination of decades of Giordano's compositional development and musical relationships. Giordano has recently composed a number of pieces designed to highlight the group's sensitive and interactive sound. The Spacetet has since released three recordings featuring these compositions: Sea Dreams (2004), Utopia (2006), and Timeline (2008). The Spacetet continues to expose their particular expression of beautiful music.
Giordano's career as a soloist and educator has recently included two tours to Italy in 2004 and 2005 offering master classes at the Accademia di Chitarra Moderna and continuing collaborations with Sicilian jazz musicians drummer Francesco Branciamore and guitarist Andrea Quartarrone. Locally Giordano has enjoyed inspired duets with various artists including John Swana on trumpet, and John Blake on violin. Player, composer, arranger, synthesist, writer, teacher. Exploring, challenging, pushing, experimenting, and enjoying the making of beautiful music with dedicated Philadelphia musicians. Ideas ever evolving. Playing from his heart with passion always.
