Steve Tibbetts

Born:

It has been eight years since Steve Tibbetts gave us the fiery electric guitar album “A Man About A Horse” (ECM 1814). Now he returns with a different kind of recording: an album of, primarily, acoustic sounds. The making of “Natural Causes” took place in a period when Tibbetts was reconsidering some fundamental aspects of his art and craft – in parallel with daily studies of Bach, Bartók, and music theory. Examining those giants up close made it doubly difficult to go about business-as-usual in his own work. “After some hours, my ears would be wide open…and disinclined to the prospect of blasting electric guitar

Guitar Trios

Read "Guitar Trios" reviewed by Russell Perry

In the last decade, a growing number of guitarists have settled on the trio as ...

Steve Tibbetts: Life Of

Read "Life Of" reviewed by Mario Calvitti


Pochi musicisti sono così sfuggenti a ogni tentativo di categorizzazione come il chitarrista americano Steve Tibbetts. La sua musica, da lui descritta come 'neo-primitivismo postmoderno' trae le sue origini inizialmente dal folk-rock sperimentale, spostandosi poi sempre più verso una dimensione world-ambient (nutrita dal profondo interesse dell'artista verso la musica nepalese e tibetana) realizzata attraverso una costante ...

Steve Tibbetts: Life Of

Read "Life Of" reviewed by Mark Sullivan


Minnesota-based guitarist Steve Tibbetts has always gone his own way, crafting his albums in the recording studio with deliberate care. Many of those albums have featured his scorching electric-guitar playing, for example Exploded View (ECM, 1986) and the later A Man About a Horse (ECM, 2002). But beginning with his previous album, Natural Causes (ECM, 2010), ...

Truck driver, husband, father, and law-abiding citizen by day, Chris Schlarb presumably dons a cape at other moments that transforms him, if not quite into the savior of creative music, at the very least into the creator of other-worldly sounds of singular vision and exceptional beauty.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
