Steve Lantner brings the disparate natures of a wide range of
musical styles--free improvisation, jazz, contemporary chamber
and microtonal music--together to create an all encompassing
voice that is uniquely his.
He is known for his originality, energy, versatility and a style that
places melody and harmony back on the improviser's palette
alongside texture, velocity and abstraction.
Part of his pursuit is to find a new language that embraces the
deep traditions of Jazz without picking one side or the other in its
dichotomy--to establish a style that embraces the breadth of all
the developments at our disposal.
