The Brecker Brothers - Straphangin' (Music On CD)



Format:  CD
Cat No:  MOCCD13710

Brecker Brothers was the jazz duo of Michael Brecker and Randy Brecker.

Randy, became famous as trumpeter and original member of the group Blood, Sweat & Tears. He appeared on their debut album ‘Child Is Father To The Man’ in 1968. The early ’80s were a confusing time for many a jazz musician. The Brecker Brothers probably weren’t straphanging on their way to work in this point in their careers, given the classy, professional sound of this set. Straphangin’ is a seven-song excursion into all sorts of fusion and AOR-like territories with keyboards and drum bits that come out plenty hard next to the horns. Titles include “Threesome”, “Straphangin”, “Bathsheba”, “Jacknife”, and “Not Ethiopia”.
