Steve Herberman: Ideals

Read "Ideals" reviewed by Dave Major

Much of what is written in reviews about Steve Herberman's playing is analogous to the created illusion of two guitarists, or the use of overdubbing. Ideals, however, finds such a statement wanting and unsuitable. Guitar and piano trios have always had a distinctive vibe and aesthetic, but here, Herberman blurs the line with his adept application ...

Steve Herberman Trio: Action: Reaction

Read "Action: Reaction" reviewed by Jim Santella

East Coast guitarist Steve Herberman presents a program of his original compositions on Action: Reaction. Along with bassist Drew Gress and drummer Mark Ferber, he romps and stomps in jazz's modern mainstream climate with creative asides added into each selection. Theirs is an equal-sharing trio that puts each voice into the spotlight throughout the session. Each ...

Steve Herberman Trio: Action:Reaction

Read "Action:Reaction" reviewed by Jerry D'Souza

Steve Herberman, who plays the seven-string guitar, is blessed with an abundance of technique. The instrument, which has been his to fathom since 1993, is now an articulate messenger for his ministrations.

Herberman writes with his eye on the palette that this guitar provides. His creativity infuses the music and it matters not whether he is ...

Steve Herberman Trio: Action: Reaction

Read "Action: Reaction" reviewed by Mark F. Turner

Washington, DC-based guitarist Steve Herberman comes into your ear-space with an authority and clarity on Action: Reaction that immediately grabs your attention. However there's more to this recording than just fretboard fireworks; his trio with bassist Drew Gress and drummer Mark Ferber delivers a three-musician communiqué of solid jazz.

Herberman is reminiscent of ...

Steve Herberman Trio: Action : Reaction

Read "Action : Reaction" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff

L’azione-reazione promessa dal titolo e ulteriormente sottolineata dalla foto di copertina rimane rinchiusa quasi totalmente nelle intenzioni dell’autore. Perché Action : Reaction è un elegante esempio di guitar-jazz-trio, con tre musicisti perfettamente in the mood, rilassati, pienamente a proprio agio tra raffinate armonie e delicate linee melodiche. Ma proprio i contrasti evocati dal titolo, il gioco delle dinamiche, le ...

Steve Herberman Trio: Action: Reaction

Read "Action: Reaction" reviewed by Michael P. Gladstone

This is, by coincidence, the fourth jazz guitar album in a row that I've reviewed, and it's the best of the bunch. Steve Herberman is a Washington, DC-based musician who previously released Thought Lines (Reach Music, 2001). Instead of a strategic mix of originals and standards, Herberman provides all-new compositions for Action: Reaction.

Steve Herberman: Action:Reaction

Read "Action:Reaction" reviewed by Dan McClenaghan

One extra string--from six to seven--does indeed make a difference on the guitar. It extends the bass range, and it lends an added richness to the harmonies. Like fellow guitarist Fred Fried, Steve Herberman plays a seven string instrument to craft a distinctive sound. Herberman's previous CD, Thought Lines (Reach Music, '02) mixed standards and originals. ...

Steve Herberman: Thought Lines

Read "Thought Lines" reviewed by Dr. Judith Schlesinger

Thought Lines is a perfect title for this leader debut from Maryland-based guitarist Steve Herberman, since his guitar lines seem to flow as naturally as thought. This CD was a welcome companion on my recent road trip after a winter storm, perfectly suiting that contemplative, long-drive mood, with enough spark and swing to keep me chugging ...
