Steve has also played with many American jazz musicians, including concerts with Jazz Machine, a band led by the legendary drummer Elvin Jones.

He has also worked with Phil Woods, Benny Golson, James Moody and Charles McPherson and in 2000 Steve joined The New Couriers.

Steve can currently be heard with the Peter King Quartet, his own trio and quartet, and with Special Septet.

Two years ago he was also invited to join the European Jazz Ensemble, a band which has featured many outstanding musicians from all over Europe since its inception in 1976.
