Michael Brecker's Quindectet

Friday 23 July 2004 23:30-1:00 (Radio 3)

On tonight's Jazz on 3, Jez Nelson presents a concert by US saxophone star Michael Brecker, recorded just a few weeks ago at the Barbican Hall in London.

Brecker is widely revered as the most technically-advanced jazz saxophonist today, and when he visits our shores it always generates considerable excitement amongst fans of the music.

His latest project, the Quindectet, is an unusual 15-piece ensemble, which includes strings, accordion, and clarinets as well as more conventional jazz instruments. This intriguing line up provides Brecker with a rich palette of colours with which to develop his arrangements. The programme, therefore, should be an opportunity to check out his talents as a composer as well as his jaw-dropping skills with the saxophone.

Duration:

1 hour 30 minutes
