More than a decade ago, multi-talented singer, songwriter and guitarist, Steve Oliver burst onto the contemporary jazz scene with a sound so fresh, so positive, and bright, that he immediately became a favorite on radio stations. Oliver is renowned throughout the contemporary jazz world for his charismatic one on one relationship with the audience and a wild array of sonic delights that include soulful lead vocals, snappy guitar lines, wild vocal percussion excursion, playful "vocalese" and wonderworking with the synth guitar. He's always sprinkled a few full-on pop/R&B vocal tunes on every album. In 2016, the multi-talented singer, songwriter and guitarist released Pictures and Frames, his first ever all-vocal album. It's Oliver's first official venture into the pop format after nine albums and over 15 years of dominance on the Billboard Contemporary Jazz chart. Steve’s newest release, Illuminate, will be released this summer. Illuminate is the much-anticipated 11th career album from multi-instrumentalist, songwriter and producer Steve Oliver, who returns with a record deeply rooted in contemporary jazz guitar melodies and his trademark wordless vocalese.
Marion Meadows is an internationally renowned saxophonist and composer. His ﬁrst RCA release, For Lover’s Only, was a huge success followed by his ground breaking Keep it Right There album. He became a staple of the contemporary jazz format with his subsequent recordings, which include Body Rhythm, Players Club, Dressed To Chill, Secrets, Whisper, and his current release, Soul Traveler. Join us for an evening of smooth jazz at its best in the intimate setting of the Studio Theatre.
