  • When it comes to the origins of fusion (jazz with rock, funk, etc.), the Brecker Brothers--Randy and Michael--were right there in the very beginning, playing (separately and together) with Larry Coryell, Billy Cobham, and other early practioners of the burgeoning new genre. They also played together in their own funk-oriented fusion combo during the 1970s before going their separate ways. In 1992, the brothers reunited, and RETURN OF THE BRECKER BROTHERS is a neat summation of where they'd been in the past and where they'd soon be going in a new musical landscape. RETURN encompasses funky grooves, hard bop, cool jazz, and world music, and features sterling, sizzling solos from the Brothers and guests such as guitarist Mike Stern and saxophonist David Sanborn.
Professional Reviews
Entertainment Weekly (11/6/92, p.68) - "...After a decade-long breather, these funk-fusion pioneers return to action, refreshed and reenergized....a fine hour for the fusion scene..." - Rating: A-

Q (12/92, p.117) - 3 Stars - Good - "...Pull in the belly, slick the pony-tail back off the bald patch, check the health insurance and party--the Brecker Brothers are back!..."

Jazziz (Dec.-Jan./92, p.94) - Picked by critic Josef Woodard as one of the 10 best jazz albums of 1992.

Audio Magazine (12/92, p.164) - "...The Brecker Brothers apparently understand the current technological and pop music trends, blending MIDI instrumentation with hip-hop fronting and African-rhythm accents....This album will be one of the heaviest on jazz-lite radio..."
