Respected studio musicians from New York and Nashville, Steve Shapiro & Pat Bergeson have worked with artists such as:
Alison Krauss, Steely Dan, Bill Frisell, Lyle Lovett, Bill Evans, They Might Be Giants, SpyroGyra, Chet Atkins, and Michael
McDonald. Their collaborative sound is an original mix of retro and modern, infused with the lush voice of rising-star jazz
vocalist Annie Sellick. Their repertoire is influenced by jazz standards, swingsters like George Barnes and Victor Feldman, and
songwriters like Joni Mitchell and James Taylor. On their latest CD, BACKWARD COMPATIBLE, the musicians include bassists
Marc Johnson, Doug Weiss, Tim Ferguson, drummers Clint deGanon, Jochen Rueckert, accordionist Will Barrow, saxophonist
Scott Kreitzer, and Stings backup singers, Janice Pendarvis and Vaneese Thomas. Their previous release, LOW STANDARDS,
received praise from many critics.
