ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
JAZZ PIANIST, COMPOSER and FILMMAKER Steve Blanco has been forging ahead with self-made creative works for over a decade. Born in Nyack, New York to a French-speaking Moroccan belly dancer (mother) and film editor with a love of music and art (father), Blanco was exposed to artistic expressions from many different cultures. Growing up he learned the trumpet then drums and didn't arrive at the piano until age 23.

Blanco’s music has been called “Progressive Jazz at its finest” and his latest album Piano Warrior (Art Of Life Records) is said to “Move like the warrior of its title - FEROCIOUSLY and in an ever-changing terrain.”

Blanco was selected to serve as a music composition grant panelist for the prestigious New York Foundation for the Arts (NYFA).

 He has released three critically acclaimed CDs, produced a music video (directed by Blanco) and currently leads a piano trio with Adam Roberts and Sunny Jain, but performs regularly in solo and duo settings.

Steve also contributes to the Munich-based Orkaan Orkestra led by composer and bassist Juergen Reiter.



In addition to performing music on a professional level, Blanco has directed eight short films (many of which have been official selections at festivals), written a feature – length script, and scored several of these films. He has served as writer, editor and cinematographer either altogether or in combinations on each of these films. He has been producer on all.


Blanco accredits his father as a major influence in bringing to the surface an array of emotional experiences stemming from creative masterpieces in music, cinema, art, writings, and philosophy that he would have otherwise not been exposed to as a young child.



From his childhood music has always been a driving force and ever present in his existence. After teaching himself for a few years Blanco privately studied piano before receiving a B.F.A. from Purchase Conservatory in New York. Blanco is the CoFounder of Insomnia Creations with Louis Cuffari and James Bartolozzi, and a contributing editor for ic magazine.
Blanco resides in New York City.
