The Brecker Brothers Reunion Band will be at Ronnie Scott’s from July 22nd to 24th. Joe Stoddart previews:
Formed in 1975, The Brecker Brothers released nine albums of jazz/funk fusion, gathering twelve Grammy nominations along the way (including two wins for 1994’s Out Of The Loop. Based around the core of the brothers, the band featured an ever changing array of some of the finest musicians of the time. Founding member Randy Brecker has reassembled some long-term collaborators in the shape of the line-up at the core of 1978’s Heavy Metal Be-Bop, bringing together Barry Finnerty (Guitar), Neil Jason (Bass) and Terry Bozio (Drums) with Italian saxophonist Ada Rovatti, who is also Randy Brecker’s wife, stepping into the massive shoes of the sadly departed Michael Brecker.
The band will be playing material from across the Brecker Brothers canon as well from last year’s The Brecker Brothers Band Reunion (Piloo Records) which featured many of the artists who’ve recorded with The Brecker Brothers over the years including Dave Sanborn, Mike Stern and Will Lee, and British-raised expat Oli Rockberger.
