Lakeshore Records: "ABE & PHIL’s LAST POKER GAME" Music by Steven Argila


When Dr. Abe Mandelbaum (Martin Landau) moves into the nursing home, Cliffside Manor, with his deteriorating wife Molly, he forms an improbable relationship with gambler and womanizer, Phil Nicoletti (Paul Sorvino). Even though at first Abe feels that moving into the home is the end of the road, he soon realizes that his life is finding a whole new beginning. Abe and Phil's friendship is challenged when a mysterious nurse claims that her biological father resides in the home. Without children of their own, both Abe and Phil jump at the chance to convince Angela, and themselves, that they are her father.

Steven’s musical life began at the age of seven when his parents brought home an electric organ.  By 10, he was winning regional and national competitions on piano and organ.  At 14, he was accepted into the pre-college division of The Juilliard School.  Steven continued his conservatory training for four years on a full scholarship to Juilliard, graduating with a Bachelor of Music degree. A professional musician since the age of 15, Steven has broad experience working in every capacity of the business, including as a composer, producer, songwriter, arranger, music director, orchestrator and performer – often simultaneously.  And his intense classical training gives him the ability to work in a wide variety of styles. Flexibility and versatility are two of Steven’s trademarks, and he particularly enjoys collaboration with directors and producers.
