Steve Herberman Trio: Ideals

D.C.-based guitarist Steve Herberman showcases his formidable chops in an intimate trio setting with bassist Tom Baldwin and drummer Mark Ferber. The swinging collection includes vibrant new arrangements of standards like Gershwin’s “This Is New” and Mal Waldron’s “Soul Eyes,” along with affecting Herberman originals like the introspective ballad “Let Go,” the jaunty “She’s for Me,” the infectious second-line groover “Upbeat,” and the gorgeous title track. A must for guitar aficionados.
