RANDY BRECKER INTERVIEW, 2005

February 18, 2021

In 2005, I wrote and hosted a series for BBC Radio 2, “Inside Improvisation”. The purpose was to explain the many facets of improvisation. I interviewed one of my biggest musical heroes, multi Grammy winning composer and trumpet virtuoso, Randy Brecker. This is one of the best possible demonstrations of how a jazz musician develops their skills, a unique masterclass by a masterful artist. In 2016, Brecker sang and played on “You Can’t Get There from Here” from my Bandzilla Rises!!! album (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9lDYluRQNoY )
