Remember the Sound

All Music Guide - Ken Dryden
The death of tenor saxophonist Michael Brecker in early 2007 shook the jazz world. This excellent tribute features Swiss alto saxophonist George Robert leading a ten-piece band consisting of fellow faculty members at Lausanne Conservatory, with special guest Randy Brecker on trumpet, playing seven originals written and arranged by Jim McNeely. Robert, who has typically recorded with a quartet or quintet prior to this outing, excels in a different setting, generously featuring his fellow musicians.

All Music Guide - Ken Dryden
The death of tenor saxophonist Michael Brecker in early 2007 shook the jazz world. This excellent tribute features Swiss alto saxophonist George Robert leading a ten-piece band consisting of fellow faculty members at Lausanne Conservatory, with special guest Randy Brecker on trumpet, playing seven originals written and arranged by Jim McNeely. Robert, who has typically recorded with a quartet or quintet prior to this outing, excels in a different setting, generously featuring his fellow musicians. McNeely's writing reflects the type of music that would have suited Michael Brecker if he had been able to participate, while is it suggestive of the different periods of the late musician's career. "Burn" is a turbulent opener, followed by the moody "Silver Spheres," which features trombonist Rene Mosele at length. "In Step, Out Ahead" blends post-bop with a contemporary air, showcasing pianist Emil Spanyi. "Into Thy Hands" is a gorgeous work that serves as a requiem, while "Hudson Funkshon" is a playful strut. Laurent Wolf's soulful tenor sax in the gospel-infused "Remember the Sound" is suggestive of Brecker without being a mere clone. Highly recommended.
