Steve Arie, bass player in John Turnbull's Birth of the Cool hot jazz cabaret, has been part of many popular and prestigious bands, including Ten Part Invention, D.I.G. and Pardon Me Boys.

Backed by two other fine jazz musicians - Paul Cutlan (Sax & Composer) and Fabian Hevia (Drums & Vibes), Birth Of The Cool re-lives the beat jazz era, the beat poets it inspired and their wild lives.

Birth Of The Cool is planned to tour American university campuses in the coming year.

The Band, the Production's specifications, Producer, Director and Birth of the Cool History are detailed on the sub-pages to the right of this panel.
