New CD Available!

7/16/2019

One night in Annapolis... Donato Soviero (guitar) and Wade Beach (piano) were scheduled to perform for Elana Byrd's jazz series at the listening-room 49 West. A last-minute call from sound engineer Med Canby afforded the opportunity to capture the evening. The resulting impromptu recording invites the listener to be the proverbial 'fly on the wall' for the evening's performance. The crowd's preference for Brazilian music and American Songbook Standards is evidenced by the tune selections here, but for good measure (and fun), Thelonious Monk and Herbie Hancock tunes were included.
Donato and Wade have been making music together since 1991 in Donato's latin-jazz group, 'Decisiones', and in various ensembles since. They can frequently be heard playing together at Donato's steady duo gig at the Tabard Inn on Tuesday nights in D.C. At the intimate space of the Tabard, Wade brings an electric keyboard which lends a different sound and approach. Interestingly, this date at 49 West was the first occasion they played together with an acoustic piano. They adapted well, and the subsequent interplay from the evening is marvelous!

New Group– Mars 4-tet

3/22/13

I'm really excited about a new group that I've been involved with for almost a year.
It's called the MARS 4-tet. Nothing to do with planetary fixations mind you (although we could go there) but rather, an acronym for the members of the band: Max Murray on bass, Jeff Antoniuk on Saxophone, Frank Russo on drums, and the "S"is me on guitar...
The group's focus is on jazz from the 70's to the present, with leanings more toward the 'modern' (whatever that means) and a healthy dose of originals, penned by myself and Jeff Antoniuk. 
We have a blast playing together and usually bring some needed irreverence and humor to our sets!

Please check the schedule section or visit the MARS link to see upcoming shows.
