Randy Brecker

Jazz trumpeter and composer Randy Brecker has shaped 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 to Frank Sinatra, Steely Dan, Jaco Pastorius and Frank Zappa. His 19 Grammy® nominations and 7 awards is testament to his talent.

After performing and touring with others, Randy and his brother, tenor saxophonist Michael Brecker, were ready to front their own group, the Brecker Brothers Band. A band of immeasurable impact and influence, they released six albums 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.” Without apology, we hold Randy in the highest possible regard as a musician and a person.
