““Steve Sternberg is one of the most versatile musicians I know. He plays a polished contemporary style, and he is a master of early jazz piano, with his boogie-woogie, stride and ragtime renditions. In his music you will hear the roots of American musical heritage.”
"The audience sat at full attention and watched a movie where the only sounds came from a live piano. The piano was as interesting a character as the movie's stars, Lawrence Criner and Kathryn Boyd. Tallahassee musician Steve Sternberg used the piano to build tension and set every scene. By the film's intermission, the audience had as much praise for him as the movie."
The Tallahassee Democrat
“The disc ["Shout for Joy"] showcases Sternberg’s dexterity as well as his versatility on seven cover tunes and six sparkling originals, including “Apalachicola Blues.” The latter is an award-winning ditty that captures the laid-back charm of the funky seaside village.”
