Randy Brecker

- Randy in Brasil

2008-10-13

Spectacular! A Melodic Latin Jazz recording from modern-day legend, the great Randy Brecker. Randy in Brazil was produced and arranged by Ruria Duprat at the popular Banda Sonora Studios in Brazil and features an amazing band formed around some of the best and most famous Brazilian musicians (including Ricardo Silveira) whose resumes read like a 'who's who' of Brazilian stars. Choosing the material from the files of Djavan, Ivan Lins, Gilberto Gil and Joao Bosco, Randy includes two smokin' hot originals for a tasty Latin production. You'll dig it; this is Brecker-Special! Randy Brecker has been shaping the sound of Jazz, R&B and Rock for decades. His trumpet and flugelhorn performances have graced hundreds of albums by a wide range of artists from James Taylor, Bruce Springsteen, Chaka Khan, George Benson and Parliament-Funkadelics to Frank Sinatra, Steely Dan, David Sanborn, Horace Silver, Jaco Pastorius and Frank Zappa. His solo recordings and rich performance history over the last five decades, as well as the wonderful Brecker Brothers efforts, have received international critical acclaim and have helped place Randy into a “living-legend" status. – AllAboutJazz.com
