After more than four decades, bassist Steve Beskrone continues to be among the most versatile and in demand acoustic and electric bassists in this region or any region. His credits read like a mini Encyclopedia of Jazz, and those credits include work with the legendary figures of jazz, including Horace Silver, Ray Charles, Pat Martino, Billy Eckstine, Gloria Lynne, Jack Sheldon, Uri Caine and dozens of others. Active in jazz education, Beskrone is on the faculty of University of the Arts and is on the roster of Musicopia artists. His style is supportive, sensitive and soulful with a unique, melodic and singing solo voice. Those who have played alongside him also note that he’s a natural born swinger with impeccable time and taste.
