REMEMBERING MICHAEL BRECKER (1949 - 13th Jan 2007)



Thank you Tim Garland for reminding us that it is exactly ten years since Michael Brecker's untimely death from leukemia at the age of just 57. Thoughtful obits from Ben Ratliff and John Fordham. In sadness.

  1. January 12 was the tenth anniversary of Alice Coltrane's death, which was completely unexpected (whereas Michael Brecker's illness had been widely reported). I remember clicking on a link to a news update about Michael Brecker and being really shocked to see the other breaking news about Alice C. (whose quartet had been due to appear at the Barbican on April 1, 2007).
