ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Steve Girardi's modern jazz trio has been performing his original music in New York City and Northern New Jersey for over a decade.

Principal composer and guitarist, Steve Girardi has a unique sound that challenges the traditional boundaries of contemporary jazz. His talents on both acoustic and electric guitar result in a rich, ethereal fusion of musical genres.

World- renowned bassist, Mike Richmond, has performed and recorded with Miles Davis, Joe Henderson, Dizzy Gillespie, John Abercrombie, Chet Baker, Stan Getz and Ravi Shankar.

Drummer/percussionist, Mark Graham, has performed in the United States, Canada, Europe and Japan with numerous recording artists. His inspired style is both subtle and intense, which makes it instantly recognizable.

Their latest recording, Within Inside, offers an eclectic blend of acoustic/electric improvisation. The music is very enigmatic in that at times, it is soulfully energized yet conveys an understated intimacy.

"floors us with his soulful virtuosity"
While most guitarist shout "This is what I can do!", Steve Girardi whispers "This is who I am" and then floors us with his soulful virtuosity. This is a beautiful CD.

Ken S. (Wonway Records)

A very nice approach to contemporary jazz
Now this is what I'm talking about! I'm not a big fan of jazz, but this CD DELIVERS! Impressive compositions and arrangements that captivates, soothes and stimulates the senses. Warm guitar tones on a bed of lush, billows of accompaniments, laced with the fierceness of virtuosity. A very nice approach to contemporary jazz that dares to depart itself from the redundant norm of the genre. You can't ask for more.

very nice blend of technique and emotion
this cd is a very nice blend of technique and emotion. as a whole the cd is very evocative, displaying deft touch, solid composition, and a variety of influences. yet, the trio always manages to maintain their own "signature", and the cd stands on its own without need for any comparison or juxtapositioning to convention. extremely fine and skilled players all in their groove. it comes highly recommended.

An Undiscovered Gem!
Steve Girardi's latest venture, the CD entitled "Within Inside", will take you for an artistically satisfying ride.
From the subtle and serene of "Bird", to the intensified edginess of "Dionigi", the 8 selections on this CD definitely do justice to the multi-colored stylings of Girardi's guitar playing. Girardi's production is tasteful and transparent, and creates an atmosphere for the listener to really "feel" the music and experience its varied emotional intensity. This undiscovered gem is a must have for every jazz enthusiast.

Sketches of intimacy alternate with uptempo songs
Where most Jazz guitarists develop a particular style and stay within their field of expertise, Steve Girardi, on his first solo CD "Within Inside" offers a broad spectrum of musical insight. Sketches of intimacy alternate with uptempo songs where all variations of jazz guitar maitrise are offered. "Within Inside" was a true discovery for me. Waiting for the next one!

soothing yet stimulating
I've been fortunate to have some lessons from Steve and I'm very happy to hear the depth of his lessons reflected in his compositions. There is a gentleness and diversity in these recordings which has kept it in my CD player for much much longer than I had anticipated!
