Listen and Discover Anew...

Over the course of his career, Steve Oliver has progressed from a fresh and vibrant golden boy to an all out superstar in the world of contemporary music. Although we were first introduced to him as a "smooth jazz" guitarist, it's become more obvious with every move along the timeline that the description deserves a revisit. There is true nuance in this music. It is defined best by the colors and textures within it and it has grown far beyond the confines of any genre. If you listen closely and with intent, the music opens up and surrounds you. There can be no denying the hits (and there are several) but it is the uniqueness of these tunes that is the reward for the listener. Of the 15 tracks here, all are originals, penned by Steve. Although he's a master on the guitar, it's the subtleties in Steve's compositions; the phrasing, the vocal percussion, and the sonic landscapes that set him apart as an artist. If you're an existing fan, do yourself a favor and discover these tracks again but from a fresh perspective. If you purchased Steve's music on the strength of the radio singles like "High Noon" or "Fun in the Sun" take a closer listen to the tracks that accompany them. If you're discovering these tunes for the first time, welcome. This is WORLD music, untarnished, uncompromised, and full of wonder. This collection not only presents the "Best Of" Steve Oliver so far, it rests comfortably among the best music released in the past 15 years.
