Steve Raybine

original contemporary jazz compostions. Raybine’s unique and refreshing musical sound
and style is captivating jazz audiences throughout the United States and Europe. Labeling
Raybine as a jazz-only artist would be a huge mistake. He is equally talented at Funk,

the Montreux Jazz Festival in Montreux, Switzerland; Frankfurt Jazz Festival in Frankfurt, Germany; the Sopot Jazz Festival in
Sopot, Poland and numerous jazz venues in Los Angeles. Raybine’s freelance
