Steve is also the director of the Five Towns College Jazz Orchestra, a 17-piece big-band.
Steve has performed or recorded with Bernard Purdie (The World's Most Recorded Drummer!), Randy Brecker, Eric Marienthal, Funk Filharmonik, Jeff Lorber, Greg Adams, Carl Fischer’s Organic Groove, Charlie Daniels, Don Grusin, Dave Valentin, Mario Cruz’s Natural Selection, Paula Atherton, and the Long Island Music Hall of Fame All-Star Band. He often plays in the NY area backing up vocalist Tom Bowes in the bands FM and SIR DUKE.
Steve is also a successful music author, having contributed lessons published in Guitar Player and Just Jazz magazines. He is also the author of Jazz Guitar Lines of the Greats, put out by Jamey Aebersold. Dr. Brody is currently laboring over Book II, which we all await with enthusiasm!
