DSC_8734_web As the sun sets in the West, so does the common man continue his search for meaning in this life, all through the late night hours of the wolves. Filtering the artificial information presented and propagated from birth to death, a man must maintain his stronghold on whatever personal liberty and freedom is left…For without it, he can’t own a business, worship (or not worship) any gods, pursue creative endeavors, drive from New York to California, build a musical instrument, etc…

Steve Blanco is a multi-instrumentalist pro musician and filmmaker based in NYC. He is well versed in many styles of music ranging from Jazz to Metal to Ambient, etc… Performing, recording, and touring are a regular part of his creative existence, and he is involved in several projects as leader or sideman. Blanco’s resume also includes composition & film scoring, as well as music instruction.

Over the years Blanco has garnered positive press for his work in Jazz as leader of Steve Blanco Trio, SBT, which featured Sunny Jain & Adam Roberts. Their work has been called “Progressive Jazz at its finest” & ”Bill Evans trio at its tightest, combined with the rambling, unpredictable theatricality of Ahmad Jamal at his best, and then increase the intensity quotient five notches.” –All About Jazz
