Randy Brecker's "In the Idiom"

3 posts in this topic

Ran across  the 1986 Denon album at Half-Price today. Sidemen looked promising: Joe Henderson, Dave Kikoski. Ron Carter, Al Foster. All Brecker originals in the so-called postbop mode, and he is in good form. This is some of the best Henderson I've ever heard -- relaxed and very adventurous/inventive/quite spikey at times. Kikoski is an asset as a comper (he really stimulates Joe) and soloist, and Carter and Foster are in very good form -- sounds like a real band. Fine James Farber recording. Sometimes you get lucky.

Long a favorite record -- Randy's best as a leader, rewarding compositions and playing, team spirit, and to me one of the best straight-ahead records of the '80s.

Got this one used. Henderson is indeed excellent here, I wish Brecker was a bit more restrained on a couple of tunes, but overall it's a really good one, thanks for the recommendation.
