Brecker

Michael Brecker died of leukemia this past Saturday and not surprisingly
the jazz world seems to be just a bit less. . . for me anyway.
If you think you’ve never heard of Brecker, think again.
Check his discography as a session player.
I’ve no doubt you’ll say, oh my God.
I’ve listened to him for over 25 years and have loved everything he ever gave to the listening world. I was fortunate enough to see him play many years ago at Paul’s Mall in Boston.
Brecker was 57 years old.
I found this tribute at YouTube and thought it was a peaceful, albeit sad way to remember a man that inspired me in many ways.
Rest in peace, MB …

  2. Michael, I feel the loss! My grandson who is 11 has leukemia,,,and I wish him a long life. He makes ‘good music’, he makes me laugh, and laughter is the music in our soul.


    Prayers for you and your grandson, Matty.
    Hang in there.
    Sounds like a brave little guy there.
