A wonderful collection of 13 original jazz songs by the masterful artist/composer Randy Brecker, comprising a wide variety of modern and straight-ahead styles. Book includes the lead line and harmony parts transposed for all instruments.
Although notably most famous for his work as one-half of the Brecker Brothers group, Randy is highly regarded as one of the best jazz trumpeters in the world. Randy played on the first Blood Sweat & Tears album, Child Is Father to the Man, was a charter member of Larry Coryell's seminal jazz fusion band The Eleventh House in 1973, and is currently a part of the GRP All-Star Big Band.
Unique to this exciting play-a-long is a separate CD of Randy (with Ada on tenor) playing the melodies with the rhythm section, so that you can hear exactly how the songs should be played (hear sound samples!).
Rhythm Section: Steve Allee (p); Bill Moring (b); Tim Horner (d)
