O’s Notes: Live 1988“takes us back to one of New York’s storied Jazz venues, Sweet Basil where trumpeter Randy Brecker introduced new music and one his finest bands. Bob Berg (sax), David Kikoski (p), Dieter Ilg (b) and Joey Baron (d) joined Brecker to form his Quintet. The performance was originally recorded on vinyl in June 1988 but it’s taken several decades to be released as a video (DVD). The CD is good but“seeing“the musicians perform takes it to a truly appreciable level, especially with the solos! Sweet Basil closed in 2001 and we lost Berg to a car accident in late 2002 but this video and audio performance is a reminder of great performances.
