Exploring the incredible musical legacy of “Tenor Titan” Michael Brecker, featuring Jim Brenan

About This Concert

The Saskatoon Jazz Orchestra is thrilled to present "Michael Brecker: Ode to a Tenor Titan," an homage to the late, great tenor saxophonist Michael Brecker. The vast musical legacy left by iconic tenor saxophonist Michael Brecker cannot be overstated, and has continued to reverberate and exert a substantial influence on many musicians playing in many musical genres well into the 21st century. Brecker’s impressive legacy, marked by 15 Grammy awards, induction into the Jazz Hall of Fame by Downbeat Magazine, and multiple honorary doctorates, stands testament to his transformative impact on music.

The Saskatoon Jazz Orchestra is very excited to feature one of Canada’s finest award-winning tenor saxophonists Jim Brenan in this high energy Brecker homage concert.

This concert will offer the listener a unique perspective into the legacy of Michael Brecker while at the same time featuring in a new perspective supplied by the creative force that simply ‘is’ Jim Brenan. This concert will also feature Jamie Cooper on drums along with the entire SJO jazz orchestra.
