"Steve Myerson Quartet"

Pianist Steve Myerson brings his eclectic repertoire to Chris’ this weekend, mashing up Gino Vanelli with Irving Berlin, Carly Simon with Stevie Wonder and original material. A dedicated jazz musician under the tutelage of Bill Charlap and James Williams, Myerson (whose sibling Jamie is a renowned techno artist) nonetheless refuses to follow standard old-school traditions. His quartet (alto saxophone, upright bass, drums) mixes eighth-note funk-fusion with straight-ahead and prestandards-era American Songbook classics with contemporary pop. Where else will you hear a reworking of Donovan’s “Sunshine Superman” book-ended by trumpeter Tom Harell’s “Sail Away”? Myerson dares you to make his day. (Ken Micallef) - Philadelphia Weekly

"Desmond and Clifton Swing at the Chadds Ford Winery"

Steve Myerson's piano playing was just terrific. I flipped at a point where he did a short improv of parallel octaves on “Blackbird,” a difficult maneuver at the least.
