Volume 126 - Randy Brecker by Jamey Aebersold. For any C, Eb, Bb, bass instrument or voice. Play-Along series with accompaniment CD. Jamey Aebersold Play-A-Long series. Advanced. Book & CD. 84 pages. Published by Jamey Aebersold Jazz (JA.V126DS).
A wonderful collection of 13 original jazz songs by the masterful artist/composer Randy Brecker, comprising a wide variety of modern and straight-ahead styles. Book includes the lead line and harmony parts transposed for all instruments. Although notably most famous for his work as one-half of the Brecker Brothers group, Randy is highly regarded as one of the best jazz trumpeters in the world. Randy played on the first Blood Sweat & Tears album, Child Is Father to the Man, was a charter member of Larry Coryell's seminal jazz fusion band The Eleventh House in 1973, and is currently a part of the GRP All-Star Big Band. Unique to this exciting play-a-long is a separate CD of Randy (with Ada on tenor) playing the melodies with the rhythm section, so that you can hear exactly how the songs should be played (hear sound samples!).
