In Celebration of Michael Brecker - presented by the AWARD WINNING SNJO with special guest, Randy Brecker

Michael Brecker was a genuine jazz titan, a saxophonist with a distinctive sound that made him the most imitated jazz musician of the past twenty-five years and that graced countless pop and rock recordings by artists including Steely Dan, Paul Simon and Frank Sinatra. A composer of conspicuous talent, Michael was joined by his brother, Randy, as his frontline partner in the Horace Silver Band, fusion pioneers Dreams and the funky, hard bopping Brecker Brothers. The SNJO, with Randy on trumpet, celebrates his music from the Brecker Brothers’ 1970s heyday through to the beautifully reflective atmosphere of his 2003 album, Wide Angles.
For details of all concerts go to www.snjo.co.uk. 
Also well done to SNJO for picking up the Parliamentary Jazz Award for the best jazz ensemble of 2012.
Lance.
