From 1969 on, he became fascinated with the European free jazz played by Manfred Scoof, Derek Bailey, Keith Tippett, Evan Parker and Kenny Wheeler. Only later did he absorb the more “historical” jazz artistes like Sonny Rollins and John Coltrane.

Graewe has subsequently played with many of the greats of the music, early on with Parker, bassist Barre Phillips and saxophonist Anthony Braxton: “I’ve been looking up to them ever since,” he says.
