Michael Brecker was an innovator on the tenor saxophone whose unique voice and approach to the instrument influenced every performing saxophonist. Winner of 15 Grammy Awards, he was a prolific composer and leader of The Brecker Brothers, Steps Ahead, the Pat Metheny-Michael Brecker Special Quartet, and other bands. At this show, Brecker’s music will be played by tenor saxophonist Tod Dickow with renowned Bay Area jazz trio Charged Particles (Murray Low, Aaron Germain, and Jon Krosnick). The performance will include complex and fascinating arrangements, fun funky and Latin rhythms, plenty of swinging, and touching romantic ballads.
