Jimmy’s Jazz & Blues Club will feature 7x-GRAMMY® Award-Winner & 19x-GRAMMY® Nominated Trumpeter and Flugelhornist RANDY BRECKER and his Quintet on Friday, October 22 at 7:30 P.M. Jazz trumpeter and composer Randy Brecker has helped shape the sound of jazz, R&B, and rock for more than four decades. His trumpet and flugelhorn performances have graced hundreds of albums by a wide range of artists from James Taylor, Bruce Springsteen and Parliament/Funkadelic to Frank Sinatra, Steely Dan, Jaco Pastorius and Frank Zappa.

  • LOS ANGELES TIMES said of Brecker, “His crisp, clean trumpet sound and decidedly melodic approach combined to offer an entirely delightful musical expression that could well serve as a beacon for contemporary jazz.”
  • DOWNBEAT MAGAZINE declared, “Since Brecker is a versatile and ubiquitous trumpeter…Brecker has the chops to play it cool or hot, laid-back or virtuosic.”
  • NEW YORK DAILY NEWS hailed Brecker stating, “He manages to play some of the most marketable easy-listening jazz in the world. But at the same time, he’s also able to inject a considerable amount of depth and conviction into his music. The code word is excitement…”

“Randy is one of the great jazz musicians and we are very honored to have him play at Jimmy’s Jazz & Blues Club,” said Suzanne Bresette, Managing Director, Programming at Jimmy’s Jazz & Blues Club. “Randy is a brilliant artist who brings his love and passion to every song he plays. We are thrilled to see him grace Jimmy’s stage with his outstanding Quintet!”
