Hello, friends. I just wanted to express my sadness over the passing of tenor saxophonist, Michael Brecker. He passed away last Saturday, January 13, after a 2-1/2 year battle with MDS & leukemia. I had the pleasure of seeing him a few times, and meeting him once. What an incredible, influential sax player.

Bill Milkowski's biography of Michael Brecker quietly appeared in October. I found out about it on jazz blogger Marc Myers's annual list of gift book ideas for music lovers...
