Today's Brew | Michael Brecker
I was listening to NPR Morning Edition this morning, and they had a really nice feature on the world renowned jazz saxophonist Michael Brecker. Although he didn't live to see the official release of his current album "Pilgrimage" that came out last month which features an all star line-up of the big names in the jazz world.
Musicians list the components of Brecker's signature sound: His rich tone. His fluid and lyrical flow. His recent growth as a composer. On Michael Brecker's musical farewell, one can hear all these things. (excerpt from the article)
Visit here to check out the full NPR article about him and stream a few tracks off the album "Pilgrimage".
