Don't Try This at Home

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Scott Yanow
Michael Brecker's second album as a leader is almost the equal of his first. Surprisingly, only one song "Suspone" uses his working quintet of the period which consists of guitarist Mike Stern, pianist Joey Calderazzo, bassist Jeff Andrews and drummer Adam Nussbaum although those musicians also pop up on other selections with the likes of pianists Don Grolnick and Herbie Hancock, bassist Charlie Haden, drummer Jack DeJohnette and violinist Mark O'Connor. Brecker on tenor and the EWI is in superb form, really ripping into the eight pieces mostly group originals. Recommended.
