Stevan Pasero has recorded over 30 albums ranging from classical transcriptions, jazz, flamenco, Latin and original works. In bending the classical form, he created a burgeoning cult following in the 90's with such albums as Guitar Heartsongs and Guitar Masterpieces, both of which were cited by the National Association of Record Distributors as one of Best U.S. classical releases. His groundbreaking transcription of Tchaikovsky's Nutcracker Suite was the first time such a feat had ever been documented. In fact, over a nine year stretch, Stevan transcribed approximately 40 major symphonic works for the guitar - a prolific number considering that for centuries, this category of orchestral masterworks was not even considered a possibility for the classical guitar repertoire. Jambossa (2009) highlighted a fusion of jazz, bossa nova, rhumba, flamenco, tango and classical styles featuring Stevan's acclaimed, adroit finger style technique. On his newest release, Twelve Shades of Night, guitarist Stevan Pasero has concocted a delectable musical recipe that infuses Brazilian, Jazz, Flamenco, Tango & Classical styles. Mr. Pasero's popularity stems from his engaging, affective renditions of timeless classics as well as his passionate and fiery original works.
