about

Critics said this about Steelonious: "Not merely one of the best instrumental CDs of the year, Steelonious is one of the year’s best CDs, period." Dan Forte, Vintage Guitar magazine

"This album is so good that each time I tried to isolate the best songs to write about, I came to the conclusion that such singling out tracks was impossible. There are 12 Monk songs on this album and every one of them is better than the last." Marc Myers, Jazzwax

"Seemingly out of nowhere, Mike Neer appears, playing Monk like some radioactive Herbert Von Karajan addressing his cosmic Beethoven." C. Michael Bailey, All About Jazz

"Neer has impressive technique, improvises on a high level, and definitely knows this material quite well. Steelonious is easily recommended." Scott Yanow, L.A. Jazz Scene

Featuring the awesome talent of NYC area musicians Matt King, Diego Voglino, Andrew Hall and Tom Beckham, all recorded live in the studio with high fidelity crispness and warmth. Mike Neer's arrangements and production bring something new to the table while paying homage to the giants of Jazz and steel guitar past. Engineered and mixed by Paul Wickliffe.
