Condolences to family, friends, and fans of Grammy-winning saxophonist MICHAEL BRECKER, who died SATURDAY (1/13) in NEW YORK of leukemia at 57.
BRECKER's long career included success as a solo jazz artist and as part of the BRECKER BROTHERS with brother RANDY; both brothers played with HORACE SILVER's quintet as well. His last album was completed two weeks ago, and the previous release, "WIDE ANGLES," won two Grammys in 2004.
