South Florida Jazz at Bailey Hall Presents The Randy Brecker Quintet


Jazz trumpeter Randy Brecker was born in Philadelphia to a musical family that included his late brother Michael, a remarkably influential tenor saxophone innovator. The brothers had created individually successful careers, but they shared a very special bond, often working together from 1975 on, as the Brecker Brothers Band, which garnered five GRAMMY Awards with their final two recordings. Randy is a supremely gifted player who adds a solid dimension to every musical situation and configuration. He is most comfortable in his own band, a hard-swinging quintet with Randyís wife, Ada Rovatti, sharing the frontline. The groupís repertoire gives more than a nod to the unforgettable Brecker Brothers. Bailey Hall is on the Broward College A. Hugh Adams Central Campus. 3501 SW Davie Rd. Davie, FL 33314. Tickets are $40-$50; $10 for students under 25 with valid I.D. For more info or to buy tickets visit or call 954-201-6884. Video: "Shang High"
