29 things Micheal Brecker wants you to know -

Saxophonist Bob Reynolds has done us a big favour here and written a nice article on advice Micheal Brecker has given through his 1984 series of interviews at the University of North Texas. I have already posted on these youtube videos before, but this is the first time I'm seeing such a comprehensive and well written guide to the things he had said.

Bob mentions at the end - 'If you know another musician who would benefit from this please pass it along' - well, these are extremely valuable for saxophonists or any student of Jazz. Like the Sonny Rollins videos I posted recently, it is rare to see the greats talk so openly and well about their art, and the practice that goes on privately. These really are a must see.
