Feeling a bit camera shy


Best known for his work with the Malford Milligan Band , saxophonist/composer/arranger/vocalist Steve Manning founded His Little Big Band along with several of his talented friends in 2001 as a vehicle for some of their original compositions. While attending Alvin (Texas) High School, Steve studied with Marilyn Chappell, principal bassoonist of the Texas Opera Theater. Steve arrived on the Austin music scene in 1995, playing first with Diamond Simon and the Roughcuts, followed by stints with Joe Valentine at the 311 Club on Austin's famous 6th Street and a disco/funk band called The Move before joining Malford in February 2004. Along the way, Steve studied saxophone with Richard Fenno, brother of The Little Big Band's drummer Jimmy Fenno. Compositionally, Steve considers Dave Brubeck and Mike Post his primary influences; and lists his favorite saxophonists as Michael Brecker, King Curtis, Lenny Pickett, and Richard Elliot. Who is Steve's favorite singer? Malford, of course!
