    Steve Kortyka

    My custom piece has the punch that I love especially when playing lead alto, but also is extremely flexible and can play dark, in tune, and at a controlled level extremely well. It works well in just about any environment - I have never found a mouthpiece with such versatility as this one.

    Based out of Astoria, NY, Steve Kortyka is an accomplished multi-instrumentalist, composer and educator. As a full time performer in NYC, he is a main member of the Brian Newman Quintet/Quartet, one of NYC's modern working bands holding multiple residencies throughout the city and earning a living performing the classic standards of yesteryear with a modern twist to them. The Grammy Award Winning albums Cheek to Cheek (recorded in 2014) and Tony Bennett Celebrates 90' feature some of Steve's arranging work on 'Firefly', 'I Can't Give You Anything But Love', 'Bewitched, Bothered, and Bewildered' and 'La Vie En Rose', as well as an improvised solo on Irving Berlin's classic "Let's Face the Music and Dance."
