Saxophonist, flutist, composer and arranger Steve Sacks
conveys a message of hope and peace through jazz which
transcends the boundaries of genre. Born in Washington, D.C. in
1953, he grew up in Chicago and Connecticut. He began learning
piano at age 7, and saxophone from age 13. After graduating
Harvard with a B.A. summa cum laude in musicology, Steve
moved to Paris for two years, then to New York City, where for
twenty years he was active on the jazz, Brazilian, and Latin
American musical scenes. He subsequently moved to Hong
Kong for two years, and has lived in Tokyo, Japan since 1999.
Steve has recorded on over 100 albums, including four as a
leader of the New York-based Brazilian jazz groups "Guanabara"
