Rocks W/ David Sandborn & NDR Bigband
Warning: Last items in stock!
Nominative determinism was never so much in evidence as in the title for this new album by Randy Brecker. He rocks. And rocks hard.
"Jazz-rock" – of which nine slices of varying thickness are served along with a sweet relish dished out by the NDR Big Band isn’t everyone’s preferred choice of jazz repast. Lying somewhere between the clean-cut sound of smooth and the hard punch of bop, when done badly it can sound derivative. Done well – as here – it’s an exciting, edge-of-the-seat, knock-your-socks-off mortar bomb of sound. And Brecker’s the perfect man to throw it.
