“The Sax-man cometh ...The video quickly got a response from Steve Graeber, a friend from Marian Catholic High School, where we both played in the band. He played saxophone, I played tuba. That church wasn’t just shaped like a toaster, he said. It was a fantastic place to worship, as well as play music. After high school (and well before Facebook made it easy for people to stay in touch), he spent many days and evenings there, playing for services and taking advantage of the building’s unique acoustics. Later, Steve pursued his passion for music all the way to Los Angeles, where he works as a studio musician and has performed in storied places like the Whisky A Go-Go and the Roxy. Steve has played and recorded with musicians from modern jazz/funk bands such as the Yellowjackets and the Greyboy Allstars. He’s just released his first album, “Space Bush.” It’s fantastic, and available on iTunes. Check him out at www.stevegraeber.com.”

“The video clip for Sparro’s new single ‘The Shallow End’, the first track to be lifted off his forthcoming album Return To Paradise on new label EMI, is a Rock Hudson-esque home movie fantasy. The song itself fuses late-70s/early-80s grooves with an impressive juggernaut of instrumentals, including a transcendent saxophone solo from Chicago house musician Steve Graeber.”

"SPACE BUSH is a masterpiece of today's Funk by Mr. Steve Graeber, one of the great musicians of our time. Superb work from top to bottom, composing at it's finest!!! I'm loving it!! loving it!"
