Biography

"Following a Michael Brecker solo is like nothing else that I have ever experienced, and very few musicians on any instrument can do it. It's because he's deep! By the time he gets done with an audience, people are standing on their chairs screaming. He gets to people under their skin, and that's what makes him heavy."

- Pat Metheny in DownBeat

I play the sax, and this guy has intrigued me since the first time I heard him. This album is by far Brecker's greatest, as he flirts with fusion, funk, yet displays his softer, more melodic side. Track number one is one challenging song to play along with, but probably the most entertaining to listen to. If you're looking to hear someone who has mastered the sax, I highly recommend getting this album.

As the title says, it's not an album everyone can do unless you practice at least 8 hours a day with all your heart. As usual, here are wonderful stories in tremendous swing from the great Michael. In fact EVERY album with Mike is a jewel. Listen to Coltrane and Bird will feed your heart too.

This album is by far Michael Breckers best album. It ranges from lush, beautiful sounds, all the way to great funk/fusion. I love this album, and I guarantee that you will too.

This release is a little more uneven than releases like Michael Brecker, Tales from the Hudson, or Time is of the Essence.

Maybe there was too much ambition behind this one (they toss in everything but the kitchen sink), or to many different sidemen for things to really gell.

When Brecker is playing tenor, he really blows...(as in great!) I could have used less of the EWI this time around. I loved the EWI playing a lot on Magnetic by Steps Ahead, but in most of the arrangements here I think the tenor is a better fit. A few of the tunes take a while to get cooking, only to fade out at the end... highlights include Scriabin, Don't Try This at Home, Talking to Myself, and the Gentleman and Hizzcaine.

I saw Brecker's live group a few times in the late eighties, and with Nussbaum, Calderazzo, Stern, and Andrews they were positively smokin'. This album just doesn't capture how good they were as a unit. Nussbaum absolutely killed on drums!
