Celebrating Michael Brecker
FEATURING:
Joey Calderazzo, piano & musical director
Jeff "Tain" Watts, drums
James Genus, bass
Ravi Coltrane, saxophones
Plus very special guests

Following a two-and-a-half year illness, jazz saxophone titan Michael Brecker passed away at the age of 57 in January 2007. As a result of his stylistic and harmonic innovations, Brecker is the most influential saxophonist of the last 30 years and is among the most studied contemporary instrumentalists in music schools throughout the world today. He is also a 15-time Grammy winner.



On August 21-23, 2012, JazzReach, Inc. and the Blue Note Jazz Club will proudly present "Celebrating Michael Brecker: A Musical Remembrance," featuring saxophonist Ravi Coltrane along with Brecker's longtime rhythm section: pianist Joey Calderazzo, drummer Jeff "Tain" Watts, and bassist James Genus. The show will also feature appearances by several very special guests.

This series of performances will function as a fundraiser for the NYC-based not-for-profit, JazzReach, Inc., with all proceeds from ticket sales directly benefiting the organization's 2012-2013 season of educational outreach programming for young audiences nationwide.

Born into a musical household in 1949, Brecker studied music at the University of Indiana along with his older brother Randy before moving to New York City, where he landed work with several bands before co-founding the pioneering jazz-rock group Dreams in 1970. Three years later, he joined his brother in the frontline of pianist and composer Horace Silver's quintet. The following year, the siblings branched off to form The Brecker Brothers – one of the most innovative and successful jazz-funk fusion bands of the decade. The end of the '70s also saw the pair form the all-star quartet Steps Ahead.



In the '70s and '80s, Brecker recorded and performed with a virtual who's who of jazz and pop giants, including Eric Clapton, Herbie Hancock, Chick Corea, George Benson, Quincy Jones, Charles Mingus, Joni Mitchell, Jaco Pastorius, Paul Simon, Frank Sinatra, McCoy Tyner, Bruce Springsteen, Steely Dan, Pat Metheny, and Frank Zappa. In 1987, he cut his first record as a leader, and his follow-up release Don't Try This At Home garnered him his first Grammy. Until his death in 2007, he continued to release acclaimed solo albums, worked extensively as a studio musician, reunited with Randy for Brecker Brothers reunions, and so much more. His innumerable accomplishments ensure that this remarkable saxophonist will be forever intertwined with the history of music.
