Michael Brecker r.i.p.

A great, great musician.

 

As I've mentioned 18 billion times, I'm a huge fan of Joni Mitchell. Just a few days back, I was watching the Shadows & Light DVD. While it's great seeing her band (Jaco Pastorius, Pat Metheny, Don Elias and Lyle Mays) recreating her amazing compositions, what made it really special was Michael's sax playing, bringing tremendous energy to the live versions of these tunes. Definitely one of a special class of musicians who contributed something unique to everything he touched.

 

RIP.

Oh man.

 

He was one of the few who could play the pop sessions right, and the hard jazz right, while never whimping out. Solid and hot. Here's to you MB.
