Randy Brecker / Рэнди Брекер
Randy Brecker is one of the most highly regarded trumpeters in jazz. In his 50-year career he’s worked everyone from Art Blakey to Jaco Pastorius, though he’s perhaps best known for his fusion project The Brecker Brothers, with his late brother Michael Brecker on tenor saxophone. In this exclusive interview he shares a collection of tracks that have shaped him as a musician, formative influences and inspirations that include music by Brazilian bossa nova pioneer João Gilberto and altoist “Cannonball” Adderley.

"His crisp, clean trumpet sound and decidedly melodic approach combined to offer an entirely delightful musical expression that could well serve as a beacon for contemporary jazz." -- Los Angeles Times
"Brecker plays clearly and strongly throughout, with a tone and technique that few players can rival... "Randy Brecker, whose stellar resume spans decades, genres, and recordings with other fine European orchestras, is supremely on his game" - All About Jazz
Trumpeter, Randy Brecker is a clever scoundrel. He manages to play some of the most marketable easy- listening jazz in the world. But at the same time, he's also able to inject a considerable amount of depth and conviction into his music. The code word is excitement..."- New York Daily News

Nominated for Grammy Awards 2014 Five Time Grammy Award winner Randy Brecker is one of the most versatile trumpeters in the industry. Brecker's famed versatility lands him in both jazz and blues, along with R&B, funk and rock. Known as a founding member of the fusion supergroup Blood, Sweat & Tears, Brecker also teamed with his brother, the late saxophonist Michael Brecker, to tour and record, and he's been a sideman for Aerosmith, George Benson, Jaco Pastorius, Lou Reed and many more. 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. The legend has played music practically since he could walk, and has been swinging audiences for over 40 years. He began playing R&B and funk in local bar bands while in his teens, and developed an ear for hard bop through his father's record collection. When he was just 22, he won the first International Jazz Competition in Vienna. He is perhaps best known as part of the duo The Brecker Brothers, a group he formed with his brother, late tenor sax player Michael Brecker. Brecker's quest for musical excellence while constantly expanding his trumpet style and encyclopedic catalogue of compositions are unparalleled.

Going right back to the beginning, when did your love affair with the trumpet begin, if you can call it that.
Well, yeah, in the long run it is but sometimes you want to throw it out the window (laughs). I keep at it, keep trying to learn that darn instrument. But my father, Bobby Brecker, was a fan. He was a piano player and a singer and songwriter also. He was a lawyer as a profession but a musician first and he loved trumpet players. We were from Philadelphia where, during the early fifties, Clifford Brown (pictured above) was playing there quite a bit with Max Roach, that was their home base. Richie Powell, Bud Powell's brother, lived in Philly. Clifford was from Wilmington, which is only 40 minutes away. They played frequently and dad always went to hear them and had all Clifford's records. I remember when I was maybe four or five years old, he was playing Clifford's, 'Ghost Of A Chance,' and he was emotionally overcome and grabbed me and said 'Randy, trumpet is the greatest jazz instrument.' I took that to heart and when I was a little older, eight years old, I had a choice of playing a trumpet or clarinet at the local grade school in suburban Philadelphia. So, I grabbed the trumpet... I'm 74 now and still trying to figure it out all these years later, but I've been playing for that many years.
Did your dad play or record with any professional musicians?
He played with professional musicians in Philly but he didn't record but for my record called 'Into The Sun,' which was recorded in 1997, I recorded him. He was a brilliant songwriter, he really was. On the album I wrote a four-part suite called 'The Hottest Man In Town' where he is playing the piano and singing a song that he wrote for me ('Prophesy') when I was two weeks old, and it completely forecasts the fact that I'll be a horn-playing musician. So, my future was set in stone.
(RANDY BRECKER - Trumpet in the Night)
Was jazz something that you immediately gravitated to because of your dad?
Yeah, I can say definitely so, as did my brother, who was three years younger than I and started a little later to get serious about it. Music was a part of our household. My sister is a fine classical pianist and harpist but she never quite took to jazz, and for whatever creative reasons, she took to classical music and got a masters degree in music composition at the University of Pennsylvania. In the composition category, Mike and I are pretty much self-taught although he did take some lessons from a wonderful guy named Edward Grainer so he had other avenues that he could provoke, I guess, to get the music. I'm completely self-taught. I just learned by sitting at the piano and figuring out voicings and just writing and recording everything on a daily basis.

Michael Brecker. Dazzling jazz saxophonist who applied the Coltrane sound to the music of his own generation
Michael Leonard Brecker, saxophonist: born Philadelphia 29 March 1949; married (one son, one daughter); died New York 13 January 2007.
Michael Brecker was widely considered to be the most influential jazz saxophonist of the last 30 years. Having thoroughly absorbed the sound and harmonic approach of John Coltrane very early on, as well as the influences of other saxophone masters such as Eddie Harris, Dexter Gordon and Ernie Watts, Brecker applied this wide learning to the music of his generation, lending his large, authoritative tone to more than 900 jazz and pop recordings and collecting 11 Grammy Awards along the way.
He was responsible for some of the most superior jazz fusion of the 1970s and 1980s: alongside his trumpeter brother Randy in their group, the Brecker Brothers; with the pianist Don Grolnick and vibraphonist Mike Mainieri in Steps (later known as Steps Ahead); and on the solo albums he led from 1987 onwards. He was also one of the most ubiquitous, and certainly the most distinguished, of studio musicians, appearing on albums by Frank Zappa, Paul Simon, Steely Dan, Elton John, Aerosmith, Diana Ross, Frank Sinatra, Lou Reed and many others.
And Brecker was definitely wrong in saying he was not a major jazz figure. He was a towering presence (quite literally, as he stood at well over six feet tall) who defined a new paradigm for what the tenor saxophone could be. His fluency was unequalled, as was the range of his playing, from twisting, Coltrane-esque sheets of sound, to yelping, funky licks.
There was a greater sense of contemplation in his later work, even before the sharp pain he noticed in his back while performing at the Mount Fuji Jazz Festival in 2004 which was the first outward symptom of the disease myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS). He and his family hoped that a bone marrow match could provide a cure. Tens of thousands of donors responded to appeals but all treatment failed, and Brecker died two weeks after completing a final album.

Биография с сайта http://randybrecker.com/about/
Jazz trumpeter and composer Randy Brecker has helped shape the sound of jazz, R&B and rock for more than four decades. His trumpet and flugelhorn performances have graced hundreds of albums by a wide range of artists from James Taylor, Bruce Springsteen and Parliament/Funkadelic to Frank Sinatra, Steely Dan, Jaco Pastorius and Frank Zappa.
Born in 1945 in Philadelphia to a musical family, Randy’s musical talent was nurtured from an early age. He attended Indiana University from 1963-66 studying with Bill Adam, David Baker and Jerry Coker and later moved to New York where he landed gigs with such prominent bands as Clark Terry’s Big Bad Band, the Duke Pearson Big Band and the Thad Jones Mel Lewis Jazz Orchestra.
In 1967, Randy ventured into jazz-rock with the band Blood, Sweat and Tears, but left to join the Horace Silver Quintet. He recorded his first solo album, ‘Score’, in 1968, featuring a young, then unknown 19 year-old tenor saxophonist named Michael Brecker.
After Horace Silver, Randy joined Art Blakey’s Jazz Messengers before teaming up with brother Michael, Barry Rogers, Billy Cobham, and John Abercrombie to form the seminal fusion group ‘Dreams’. The group recorded two adventurous and wildly acclaimed albums: ‘Dreams’ and ‘Imagine My Surprise’ – now collector’s items – for Columbia Records before they disbanded in 1971.
In the early 1970s, Randy performed live with many prominent artists including Larry Coryell’s Eleventh House, Stevie Wonder and Billy Cobham. He also recorded several classic albums with his brother under the leadership of the great pianist/composer Hal Galper.
By 1975, Randy and Michael were ready to front their own group, the Brecker Brothers Band. A band of immeasurable impact and influence, they released six albums on Arista and garnered seven Grammy nominations between 1975 and 1981. Their eponymous first record, which Randy wrote, arranged and produced, featured his now classic composition “Some Skunk Funk.”
In 1992, exactly ten years after they parted ways to pursue solo careers, Randy and Michael reunited for a world tour and the triple-Grammy nominated GRP recording, ‘The Return of the Brecker Brothers’. The follow-up, 1994’s ‘Out of the Loop,’ was a double-Grammy winner.
In 1997, ‘Into the Sun’ (Concord), a recording featuring Randy’s impressions of Brazil, garnered Randy his first Grammy as a solo artist.
In 2001, Randy released ‘Hangin’ in the City’ (ESC), a solo project which introduced his alter-ego Randroid, a skirt chasing, cab driving ne’er do well, with lyrics and vocals by Randroid himself. This CD was especially well received in Europe, where Randy toured extensively with his own line-up.
Randy’s next CD for ESC Records, ’34th n’ Lex,’ won him his third Grammy for ‘Best Contemporary Jazz Album’ in 2003. In May of that year he toured Europe with his Quintet in support of the CD, and in the summer went back to Europe yet again with the Randy Brecker/ Bill Evans Soulbop Band.
The summer of 2003 culminated in the special headline appearance in Japan at the Mt. Fuji Jazz Festival of the reunited Brecker Brothers.
2004 saw Randy touring Europe extensively as co-leader (with Bill Evans) of the band Soulbop. The WDR Big Band also celebrated Randy and his music that year in a performance at the Leverkusen Jazz Fest. The date was of special significance to Randy as it was the last time he played with his brother, who took ill shortly thereafter with a rare form of leukemia known as MDS.
In 2005, with Mike unable to travel to Russia for Brecker Brothers gigs booked there, Randy’s wife Ada sat in for the first time. Randy’s active schedule continued apace with the Randy Brecker Band performing throughout Eastern Europe and across the globe.

In 2007, Randy was awarded his fourth Grammy for “Randy Brecker Live with the WDR Big Band” (Telarc/BHM), the live recording (also available in DVD format) of his performance with Michael at the Leverkusen Jazz Fest in 2004.
Tragically, Michael passed away that same year on Jan 13th.
2007 also saw the release of a 2 CD set of live recordings of the band ‘Soulbop’ (BHM) featuring Dave Kikoski, Victor Bailey, Steve Smith or Rodney Holmes and the late great Hiram Bullock.
(На видео: The Grammy Award winning Pop and Jazz Trumpeter Randy Brecker presents a master class at the 2017 National Trumpet Competition on Friday, March 24, 2017 at Metropolitan State University of Denver in Denver CO.)
Randy returned to his long-time love of Brazilian music in 2008 for the album ‘Randy in Brazil,’ which was recorded in Sao Paulo with a full complement of great Brazilian musicians and released on Summit Records. Chosen one of the top 10 CDs of 2008 by AllAboutJazz.com, the CD won the Grammy for “Best Contemporary Jazz Album,” bringing his Grammy total to five.
A “Tribute to the Brecker Brothers” featuring Randy and recorded live at the Hamamatsu Jazz Festival in Japan with Yoichi Murata’s Solid Brass & Big Band was released by JVC Victor in Japan in late 2008.
And in 2009, Randy’s roots were celebrated with the release of ‘Jazz Suite Tykocin,’ a project initiated and conceived by the Polish pianist and composer Wlodek Pawlik, featuring Randy as a soloist with members of the Bialystok Philharmonic. Tykocin is the area in Poland where Randy’s ancestors (mother’s maiden name: Tecosky) hail from, a fact that Pawlik discovered while helping to search for a bone marrow donor for Michael.
2011 saw the release of ‘The Jazz Ballad Song Book: Randy Brecker with the Danish Radio Big Band and The Danish National Chamber Orchestra,’ which garnered 4 Grammy nominations and enjoyed enthusiastic critical acclaim. And in 2012, Sony Legacy recaptured history with the long-awaited boxed set, “The Brecker Brothers – The Complete Arista Albums Collection.”
A Brecker Brothers Band Reunion tour of European festivals in the summer of 2013 in support of Randy’s newest project, Randy Brecker’s “Brecker Brothers Band Reunion,” re-introduced the familiar faces of Brecker Brothers Band members from the past and their special brand of music to sell-out crowds.
A dual-disc release, Randy’s newest project will be released on September 25th, 2013 on Piloo Records. Randy Brecker’s “Brecker Brothers Band Reunion”featuresa live DVD recorded at the Blue Note in NYC bundled with a new 11-song studio recording featuring members of the Brecker Brothers bands from throughout the years including Dave Sanborn, Mike Stern, Will Lee, and Dave Weckl. George Whitty is back in the production and keyboard chair, and Randy’s Italian wife Ada Rovatti is in the ‘hot saxophone’ seat, keeping it in the family on tenor and soprano saxophone. The new dual-disc recording will be released in North America by Magenta/E-One, in Europe by Moosicus Records in November and in Japan by JVC/Victor.
A long time in the making, this project is very close to Randy Brecker’s heart. It is dedicated to his brother, Michael, and other departed Brecker Brothers Band members.
As a composer, performer and in-demand Yamaha clinician, Randy Brecker continues to influence and inspire young musicians around the world.

Randal Edward Brecker (born November 27, 1945) is an American trumpeter. flugelhornist, and composer. His versatility has made him a popular studio musician who has recorded with acts in jazz, rock, and R&B.
Brecker was born on November 27, 1945 in the Philadelphia suburb of Cheltenham to a musical family. His father Bob (Bobby) was a lawyer who played jazz piano and his mother Sylvia was a portrait artist Randy described his father as "a semipro jazz pianist and trumpet fanatic. In school when I was eight, they only offered trumpet or clarinet. I chose trumpet from hearing Diz, Miles, Clifford, and Chet Baker at home. My brother [Michael Brecker] didn't want to play the same instrument as I did, so three years later he chose the clarinet!" Randy's father, Bob, was also a songwriter and singer who loved to listen to recordings of the great jazz trumpet players such as Miles Davis, Dizzy Gillespie and Clifford Brown. He took Randy and his younger brother Michael Brecker to see Davis, Thelonious Monk, Duke Ellington, and many other jazz icons. Brecker attended Cheltenham High Schoolfrom 1959 to 1963 and then Indiana University from 1963 to 1966 studying with Bill Adam, David Baker and Jerry Coker and later moved to New York and performed with Clark Terry's Big Bad Band, the Duke Pearson and the Thad Jones/Mel Lewis Orchestra.
In 1967, Brecker ventured into jazz-rock with the band Blood, Sweat & Tears, on their first album Child Is Father to the Man, but left to join the Horace Silver Quintet. Brecker recorded his first solo album, Score, in 1968, featuring his brother Michael Brecker.
After Horace Silver, Randy Brecker joined Art Blakey's Jazz Messengers before teaming up with brother Michael, Barry Rogers, Billy Cobham, and John Abercrombie to form the fusion group Dreams.

Their first record, The Brecker Bros., featured Randy's composition "Some Skunk Funk", and he composed several pieces on this and subsequent albums.
After the Brecker Brothers disbanded in 1982, Randy recorded and toured as a member of Jaco Pastorius' Word of Mouth big band. It was soon thereafter that he met and later married Brazilian jazz pianist Eliane Elias. Eliane and Randy formed their own band, touring the world several times and recording one album named after their daughter together, Amanda on Passport Records.
