Seven-string jazz guitarist Steve Herberman is known for his warm, subtle playing and deft counterpoint, A graduate of Berklee College of Music, Steve has received wide critical acclaim for his performances and recording, and he is.a highly respected jazz educator. Steve has performed at Birdland in New York, Spazio in Los Angeles, the North Wales jazz guitar weekend in the U.K., and venues across Italy.
Closer to home, he has performed at Blues Alley, the Smithsonian Jazz Cafe, and the Kennedy Center.
“Steve Herberman exhibits a vast harmonic palette involving uncommon stretches on the fretboard along with a real capacity to burn on fluent single note lines… His sheer command of the instrument puts one in mind of such jazz guitar masters as Joe Pass, Joe Diorio, Lenny Breau, and Gene Bertoncini. His nuanced touch, excellent tone, tasteful, even phrasing and fresh writing style, further elevates Herberman far above the pack of other talented Berklee grads…definitely worth checking out for fans of advanced jazz guitar.” ~ Bill Milkowski, JazzTimes (05/07)
“Herberman shows himself to be a wonderful player with a great touch, a
first-rate interpreter, and a composer of originals that stick in your
mind. He’s extremely imaginative and plays with the fire that’s needed.
He’s a stylist a la Jim Hall, Kenny Burrell and Wes Montgomery.”
