O’s Notes: A musician’s dream is to perform on stage in front of a powerful large ensemble. The Jazz Ballad Song Book is a realization of this dream for trumpeter Randy Brecker who opens “All or Nothing at All” soaring with the melody empowered by DR Big Band, not just any large ensemble! There are passionate ballads like “Cry Me A River”, “Round Midnight” and “Skylark” with electrifying passages that resonate deeply. Brecker seems invincible and listeners are captivated over ten well-chosen standards.
