Just incredible...maybe my favorite Brecker... and his solo gets better and better as it goes. Any Breckerheads know what mouthpiece was he using during this?

And OMG the band... Robben Ford!, George Duke!, and the others.... WOW such a superstar lineup.

I guess it would be nice to know what album or recording.

He had one of the greatest tenor sax sounds during this period. I love a lot different styles and sounds. Ben Webster, Stan Getz, Coltrane, Joe Henderson, Lester Young, Hank Mobley, Lovano, Gonsalves, Eddie Harris, Eddie "Lockjaw" Davis and others all have special and unique sounds,I love 'em all, and Brecker's sound during this period especially is one of those really special sounds.

Hey there LateNiteSax . Personally I think this is not only his best sound but one of his best solos.

Louis is definitely an expert on this topic. Michael played a Dukoff through most of his time in the 'Brecker Bros' before the break.

Nice stuff! This would be a great solo to transcribe... This is not the tone I like best but he sure makes it work for him.
