Giordano performing with his quintet at Chris' Jazz Café in Philadelphia.

Philadelphia jazz guitarist Steve Giordano is a world-renowned master of his craft. Navigating effortlessly and creatively though the traditional sub-genres of jazz, it is obvious to the sensitive and critical listener that Giordano's improvisations are drawing inspiration from obscure and eclectic sources that exist beyond the boundaries of the jazz aficionado's record collection. Steve defies expectations by masterfully weaving fragments of  melodic dissonance  and harmonic tension into standards that are often well over a half-century old.

Giordano is as innovative and skilled a teacher as he is an improvisor. His methods inspire students (of any instrument) to reach deeply into themselves, listen mindfully, and truly express their own musical vision.
