Randy Brecker’s Horn Section


I’ve made earlier mention of the fact that Michael Brecker, David Sanborn, and Fred Wesley all are on Randy Brecker’s new CD, 34th N Lex. It gets better. Here’s the entire horn lineup on this powerful CD:

  • Randy Brecker: Trumpet, Fluegelhorn
  • Michael Brecker: Tenor Saxophone
  • David Sanborn: Alto Saxophone
  • Ronnie Cuber: Baritone Saxophone
  • Ada Rovatti: Tenor Saxophone
  • Fred Wesley: Trombone
  • Michael Davis: Trombone.

You’ll hear Cuber’s influence on the record right off the bat with the opening title track. Ada Rovatti, Randy’s wife, blows out the solo on “The Castle Rocks”. “The Fisherman” is a tribute to one of Randy’s close friends, Bob Berg, who tragically died in a car accident last December.

You’ll find a busy atmosphere on most of the 11 tracks, which is to be expected given the influence on Randy from living at 34th and Lexington in New York City for almost a decade.
