Steve Allee

Indianapolis' own, pianist, composer, educator Steve Allee is known for his continued contributions to "The Indianapolis Sound." His playing style has a touch, sparkling clarity and improvisational variations reminiscent of the late Bill Evans, as well as a very strong blues influence that Steve credits to his exposure to Buddy Montgomery and Horace Silver.

A prolific composer and performer Allee has recently been hard at work as part of bass legend Rufus Reid's Trio (JJ Johnson, Nancy Wilson, Eddie Harris) in addition to his teaching duties as jazz piano professor at CCM in Cincinatti, OH

All of his career facets have blended into a distinct musical style that has a very strong visual, almost cinematic flavor because of his skill in capturing or reinforcing important moods or visual elements that inspire his projects.

A native son and longtime resident of Indianapolis, Indiana, Steve was fortunate to grow up in the hometown of many jazz greats, including brothers Wes, Buddy and Monk Montgomery, Slide Hampton, J.J. Johnson, David Baker, Freddie Hubbard and Melvin Rhyne, among others.
