Having moved to Seattle two years ago, I hooked up with some wonderful musicians and am finding the northwest as equally beautiful as different from New Mexico - -

the flugal playing was a revisit back to my Don Ellis days -

Blue Note Review
In the â70âs, a street-wise kid named Billy Joel dubbed himself the âPiano Manâ and proceeded to catapult to superstardom. That was about the same time that Los Angeles-raised Marc Daniel Steiner made the transition from Don Ellis inspired jazz trumpeting to playing piano in rock bands. He spent the next 10 years doing just that before moving to Albuquerque in 1987 to take care of other important business like raising his sons.
Having graduated from fatherhood -- his sons have since made the all-important transition from childhood to adulthood -- Steiner has turned his attention back toward songwriting and performing.
Steiner mixes poignant ballads with uptempo material, often adding sarcastic and humorous lyrics that make his music highly entertaining and engaging on many levels. The centerpiece of all his compositions, though, is his feel for beautiful, flowing melodies. His vocal work has the same disarming quality that made Billy Joelâs early records memorable - - an uncanny ability to wedge intermittent minor key resolves into upbeat arrangements. But the comparison to Joel stops there.
It is rare among pianists -- save for Monk and a handful of other jazz and blues pianists -- to develop a truly signature sound on the instrument, but Steiner makes short work of creating his own unique voice on the keys. His playing is marked by the melding of many styles, blues being the most noticeable. And within his own original repertoire, Steiner seems to move with ease between Lennon-esque melancholy and McCartney-like urgency. In fact, his voice often hints at the oppositional solo piano compositions penned by the famous ex-Beatles.
Marc Daniel Steiner creates joyful, honest music while running the gamut stylistically.
