What You’ll Do
Steve Giordano started his own jazz salon to offer a musical rarity: a chance to listen to acclaimed musicians play original compositions in a relaxed, intimate setting. Steve has invited a variety of musicians—all renowned for their craft—to play with him, so on any given night, you might hear fusions of Brazilian samba, impressionistic jazz, or ballads. During intermission, artists will mingle and chat with the guests about their musical influences and experiences, before it’s time to pour yourself another glass of home-brought bubbly or skim milk as the musicians pick their instruments back up to finish off the evening with more jazz.<p>

- Interact with Musicians
