Steve Wiest (né John Stephen Wiest; born 1957) is an American trombonist, composer, arranger, big band director, music educator at the collegiate level, jazz clinician, author, and illustrator/cartoonist. From 1981 to 1985, he was a featured trombonist and arranger with the Maynard Ferguson Band. Wiest is in his fourth year as Associate Professor of Jazz Studies and Commercial Music at the University of Denver Lamont School of Music. He is the Coordinator of the 21st Century Music Initiative at the school. Wiest has been a professor for twenty-nine of the thirty-seven years that he has been a professional trombonist, composer, and arranger. From 2007 to 2014, Wiest was Associate Professor of Music in Jazz Studies at the University of North Texas College of Music and, from March 2009 to August 2014, he was director of the One O'Clock Lab Band and coordinator of the Lab Band program. At North Texas, Wiest also taught conducting, trombone, and oversaw The U-Tubes — the College of Music's jazz trombone band. Wiest is a three-time Grammy nominee — individually in 2008 for Best instrumental Arrangement and in 2010 for Best Instrumental Composition, and collaboratively in 2010 for Best Large Jazz Ensemble Album, which he directed. As of 2013, Wiest has in excess of 58 arrangements and compositions to his credit, which include 10 original compositions from his current project (see 2013–2014 project, below).

2013–2014 project

Steve Wiest Steve Wiest Edwards Blog

In August 2013, Wiest, a sci-fi enthusiast, published a sci-fi novel, The Dover Stone: A Concerto for Folded Space. Wiest explains that it is built on inter-connected vignettes or movements that comprise an epic tale of life from other worlds and our place in the cosmos. The Term "folded space" is a theoretical speed of travel, faster than the speed of light, exceeding relativistic velocity by folding space, bringing far to near, reducing the long distances to a virtual zero. The tale is the impetus for ten compositions by Wiest, who describes the works as "programmatically informed" by the science fiction." The fictional vignettes culminate to answer real-life physicist Enrico Fermi's famous question, "Where is everybody?", a reference to the wonderment of life elsewhere in the universe. The stories occur in periods from 1182 to 2457.

Steve Wiest Steve Wiest Wikipedia the free encyclopedia

The Steve Wiest Eclectic Electric Band will record the compositions as one album titled, Concerto for Folded Space. Wiest's compositional style ranges from straight ahead to jazz fusion, and sometimes pop-rock. With this project, Wiest is experimenting with serialism, not in a strict sense, but many elements are generated from rows.

The musical portion is an ArtistShare project and is scheduled for release early 2014. The band members are Wiest (composer and trombonist), Stockton Helbing (drums, producer), Braylon Lacy (bass), Ryan Davidson (guitar), Noel Johnston (guitar), and Daniel Pardo (flute). Guest artist are Bob Mintzer (tenor sax), Arlington Jones (né Arlington Julius Jones II) (piano), and James Pankow (trombone).

Essentially, ArtistShare is the record label and represents Wiest's foray into an alternative model for producing music. ArtistShare is a fan-funded platform where artists provide content for patrons who subscribe to access levels of their choosing. For example, on November 6, 2013, Wiest uploaded one in a series of "cool stuff", as he phrased it, to the Participant Zone of his ArtistShare Concerto for Folded Space site. The "cool stuff" included a "programmatic" analysis and complete score for "The Flutes of Glastonbury", one of the ten compositions.

Other sci-fi inspired compositions

Other sci-fi-related works composed by Wiest include "Ice-Nine", a 2009 composition scored for big band, drawn from Kurt Vonnegut's novel, Cat's Cradle. "New Cydoinia", a 2010 big-band arrangement, is a programmatic representation of all of the theories and stories surrounding the enigmatic area on Mars known as Cydonia. "A Night in Pidruid", a 2006 composition scored for big band, is a programmatic and thematic development of characters and events in Robert Silverberg's Lord Valentine's Castle. "Blues From Space", a 1984 composition scored for big band, is a novelty tune about an alien who brings a philosophy of "Sing the Blues" to Earth.

    Steve and Carmen Jean Wiest (formerly Diagostine, née Watzka) have been married seventeen years. Carmen is a violinist, orchestra conductor, and music educator. Steve's father, John Thomas Wiest (1932–2006) was a trombonist and his mother, Wanda Jean Stegall, is a retired educator. Wiest has three siblings, Jeanne Stegall-Keene, Robert Wiest and Andrew Wiest, PhD. Andrew Wiest is professor of history at the University of Southern Mississippi. One of Steve's cousins, Nick Drozdoff, is a notable jazz trumpeter and music educator based in the Chicago area. Drozdoff played with Maynard Ferguson in 1981 when Steve joined the band. They are cousins by way of Steve's father and Nick's mother. Nick's mother was Mary Chase Lombard (formerly Drozdoff, née Wiest; 1921–2010), an influential puppeteer and early television pioneer known for her adaptations of Fearless Fosdick and Li'l Abner. Nick's father, Paul V. Drozdoff (1908–1958), was a notable third-generation concert pianist, born in Saint Petersburg, Russia and, as a child with his parents, immigrated to the United States. Steve Wiest's paternal grandfather, Waldo (Wally) Hayes Wiest (1888–1968), was a commercial artist who had worked with Sam Gold, Inc. (Chicago), Frederick Voges, Einson-Freeman Co., Inc. (Chicago), then his own company that he founded with Fred Voges — Advertising Ingenuities, Inc. (Chicago). Wally was known within brand management and advertising circles for his work with "premium" giveaways and product characters such as Kellogg's "Snap, Crackle and Pop."

    Steve Wiest has a daughter, Amber, and two sons, Matthew and David.
