Stevan Pasero from California San Francisco

Artist History

Stevan Pasero is recognized worldwide as one of the most influential & versatile guitarists of the past two decades. He has transcribed 30 major symphonic works, performed on over 300 CDs, produced 1000 masters for other artists (many of which are featured in this website), & composed over 1500 songs. He is one of a few guitarists to record in several music idioms successfully, bridging both classical, jazz & world markets. Fans and critics say that Stevan Pasero ((www.stevanpasero.com) is one of the music world’s best kept secrets, even though his CDs have sold cumulatively more than 15 million copies around the globe. His music is found in over 70 countries worldwide.

In addition to his own projects, Mr. Pasero is in high demand as music producer and has produced numerous recordings for notable artists. He has also produced music for some of the most brand-conscious companies in the world including a series of 20 CDs for the National Geographic Society, as well as Sharper Image, Pottery Barn, Hewlett Packard, Tommy Bahama, Hard Rock Café, Discovery, Kimpton, Banana Republic, Starwood, to name just a few.


Stevan’s newest album just released, Twelve Shades of Night, was written in 12 months, recorded in 12 weeks, mixed in 12 days, and was inspired by the 12 hours of night. This new album of original compositions integrates Stevan's love of Brazilian, Spanish & American music along with bossa nova, rhumba, flamenco, classical and jazz styles. Stevan's new ensemble features the rhythmic cadences of Felix de Lola on cajon & palmas, the Latin syncopations of Colin Douglas on drums, and the lush string ensemble of the Musical Art Quintet featuring bassist Sascha Jacobsen.


Last year, Stevan released Jambossa - a fusion of jazz, bossa nova, rhumba, flamenco, tango and classical styles. The track selection highlights memorable jazz and pop standards yet with a twist that has not been heard before due to his virtuoso finger style. According to Stevan Pasero: I have been looking forward to arranging songs in a way that combines several of my favorite music genres (jazz, Brazilian, rhumba, pop) while utilizing specific finger style techniques (classical, flamenco, tango). It is called mashing, or at least that is what I call it. It was really fun in the studio to mash right hand techniques that I have studied through the years (rasqueado, apoyando, libre, arpeggio). On this recording, Mr. Pasero chose to arrange songs from a variety of genres: bossa nova (Black Orpheus, How Insensitive, Dindi); jazz standards (Georgia, Unforgettable, What a Wonderful World); tango/rhumba (Besame Mucho, Boulevard of Broken Dreams); classical (Carmen, Gymnopedie); and pop (Moondance, Stairway to Heaven). This CD showcases the best of both worlds for guitar lovers and fans of Stevan Pasero: a memorable selection of songs framed by exhilarating, flamboyant guitar performances and unforgettable trio arrangements.

Guitar virtuoso, Stevan Pasero releases another outstanding album, “Twelve Shades of Night,” that is overflowing with brilliant compositions of Classical, Jazz, Rhumba, Flamenco, and Bossa Nova music. Pasero engages the listener with his skillful precision on the guitar while also showing his versatility in the styles of music he plays. Opening up the album, “Rhumba Dee,” has a charming groove, beautiful strings, and a vibrant beat. The song, “Soleares Enrique,” moves with a sophisticated flair as Pasero performs with a strong and intense precision. His rendition of “Malaguena My Love” is energetic as he deftly brings life to this classic song. “Prayer” has a softer tonality and smooth rhythm that grooves with a sleek soulful style. Sit back and enjoy the spectacular collection of instrumental guitar music on the wonderful album, “Twelve Shades of Night.”

"Jambossa" by Stevan Pasero (Jazz Artist from San Francisco, California(CA))

RadioIndy is pleased to present Stevan Pasero with a GrIndie Award for the CD "Jambossa "

The amazing finger style talents of guitarist Stevan Pasero are undeniable on his latest effort, “Jambossa.” The record, an eclectic mix of jazz, flamenco, classical, Brazilian, and tango, also offers listeners some tasty covers to boot. For starters, Pasero takes his aim on Van Morrison’s classic “Moondance” and the outcome is brilliant. You also have to listen to his cover of Led Zeppelin’s “Stairway to Heaven,” it is pretty remarkable. Pasero transforms this classic rock epic into a bouncy, Latin pop song with a jazz infused shuffle, light years away from the original recording. Don’t let the covers make you forget just how exceptional a guitarist Pasero is, his talent is superb and his soloing shines through on tracks like “Boulevard of Broken Dreams.” If you want to hear some fine guitar playing or like listening to well performed cover songs, “Jambossa” is a safe bet.
