Scottish National Jazz Orchestra: The Music of Steps Ahead featuring Mike Mainieri

10 June 2016 at 7:30pm

Michael Mainieri is an award-winning jazz vibraphonist, as well as a renowned producer, performer, arranger, and composer. He is perhaps best known for his work with the influential jazz/fusion group Steps Ahead.

In the 1980’s, advances in music technology took jazz in new directions, and Mainieri was among the first to grasp its potential. He’s especially recognized for synthesising electronic sounds with the organic cool of the vibraphone in order to create something fresh and new.

The Steps Ahead project is widely admired for its ambitious music, and its ever-changing line-up has featured dozens of influential figures such as Steve Gadd, Mike Brecker, Eddie Gomez and Don Grolnick.

Mainieri has routinely taken the vibraphone to unexpected places in a diverse career that has included performances alongside Dizzy Gillespie, Frank Zappa and Joe Lovano. His primary focus however, continues with Steps Ahead, and this vibrant concert series with the SNJO sees the opening of a new and exciting chapter.
