Jazz saxophonist, Michael Brecker is dead at 57 years old. I first heard Brecker on NPR and have loved this music for the past couple of years. He's been around much longer in jazz land but we have lost all our jazz stations and I had fallen out of the place of being "in the know" with smooth jazz.
It is a loss if you love smooth jazz or sax.
