Cody Steinmann, a multifaceted jazz composer and music teacher, has spent over a decade exploring and improvising soulful jazz music with unparalleled zeal and determination. He incorporates other sounds such as rock and hip-hop with near-flawless execution, resulting in a genuinely new experience. As a professional guitarist, it has always been such an awe-inspiring experience to watch him play live as he finds ways to use this revered musical instrument in ways that melt your heart.
“SYDOC” is just musical improvisation at its finest; I fear I lack the words to display the depth of my appreciation for this first-class musical performance that is brimming with instrumental dexterity and artistic showmanship to engineer an insanely glorious progressive sound as this.
This is such an impeccable distillation of pure artistry, with all the key players here working in close tandem and in perfect harmony with one another to achieve ear candy that really shines through a listener’s heart and soul as much as their ears.
A special shout-out goes to the phenomenally gifted Chris Bates on the bass as well as Abinnet Berhanu on drums for making this incredible thing of beauty a huge success. This is the best music to study to, meditate to, chill out to, and relax to, as the tranquil and ear worming progressive melodies do inexplicably beautiful things to your body, mind, and soul.
And like it’s his tradition, the Cody Steinmann Trio makes sure that this is not just plain jazz, the subtle rock sensibilities can be heard through the live performance, and the accompanying music video of the live studio performance helps the listener appreciate the time, effort, and technique that made it possible for this to happen.
