Michael Graetzer has a show on 09/29/2012 at 09:00 PM @ THE VAGABO... in New York, NY http://www.reverbnation.com/c./poni/141246404 #concert


"Soon," 2002 Nashville Songwriting Association International award winner is a sweet gem of a song. Celio Brandt's jazzy alto sax adds an adult sophistication throughout. Again on "Sakura" (Cherry Blossom), the harmony of alto and tenor horns suggest blooming musical possibilities to come.

What a world it would be! Just listen to Michael Graetzer's "Lifetime to go." Good song.
