READ

Wikipedia : This day (January 13, 2007), in New York City, New York, died Michael Brecker, an American jazz saxophonist and composer.

Official Site : Most of his early work is marked by an approach informed as much by rock guitar as by R&B saxophone. After Dreams, he worked with Horace Silver and then Billy Cobham before he and brother Randy teamed up once again.

@allmusic : However, after experiencing some mysterious back pain during a concert in 2005, Brecker was diagnosed with myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS), a cancer of the blood marrow.

@last.fm : The Breckers’ Out of the Loop (1994) and Michael’s Tales From the Hudson (1997) put additional Grammys on the saxophonist’s shelf, leading to Brecker being named Best Soloist of the Year by JazzLife and Jazz Man of the Year by Swing Journal.
