Brecker Brothers / Heavy Metal Be Bop

Waxed in 1978 at my beloved My Father’s Place in Long Island (save the opening studio track / single “East River”) this loud, lick-filled live platter captures Michael and Randy at their absolute apex as a performing unit. Bolstering the Brecker’s electrified horns, Terry Bozzio's frenetic drum artistry, and Barry Finnerty’s killer guitar work is session bass ace Neil Jason, no stranger to flange and delay, slapping and grooving on Brothers classics rendered twice the speed of their studio counterparts. The only title that befits this slab is… Heavy Metal Be-Bop!
