Widely considered as one of the most influential tenor saxophonists of all time, multi Grammy award winner Michael Brecker has inspired jazz musicians in a way like few others. Since early beginnings in a musical home, Brecker went on to enjoy an illustrious international career as a soloist, sideman and composer. His innovative and evolutionary style covered a wide range of genres, including jazz, R&B, funk, rock and pop, and led him to form numerous partnerships with many world-renowned musicians.
