Ultimate Michael Brecker Playlist

Outside of John Coltrane and Sonny Rollins, few tenor saxophonists have had such a profound influence on the direction of modern jazz than Michael Brecker. His unique approach to phrasing and harmonics has become the lingua franca of saxophonists around the globe, and the impact he made during his far-too-short lifetime has extended beyond the borders of jazz into pop, funk, rock and beyond.
