Grassauer Blechbläser Ensemble

The Brecker Brothers was a band where some of the top jazz improvisers got together and played original funk tunes. Randy Brecker was the band’s trumpet player and his brother Michael was the tenor saxophonist. If you haven’t heard this band yet, you’ve been missing out.

Eddie Lewis posts these videos as listening assignments to his students. He often tells the students that “listening is more important than practicing”. To that end, he shares the videos so the students have something to inspire them to listen more often to professional trumpet players.

That said, if you are not one of Mr. Lewis’ students, we welcome you, too. The more the merrier! Welcome to Feel free to post your comments and questions below.
