After a long battle with illness, Michael Brecker passed away on Saturday,
January 13, 2007 at the age of 57. May God keep him and offer he and
his family the same joy, compassion, and comfort Michael offered to all
of us throughout his short stay on planet Earth. As musicians,
we were all touched and influenced by his genius.
Michael Brecker was a great person, mentor, friend and, in the opinion
of Professor Calle and countless other musicians and fans, the greatest
saxophonist in history. Michael
Brecker is the most innovative, influential, imitated and recorded saxophonist
in history. He has earned 11 Grammy Awards. No other saxophonist has
achieved this milestone.
