Tenor saxophonist Michael Brecker dies at age 57

From [Newsday.com](http://www.newsday.com:) “Michael Brecker, a versatile and highly influential tenor saxophonist who won 11 Grammys over a career that spanned more than three decades, died Saturday at age 57. ”

I can’t believe it.

I’ve been blown away by what Michael was able to play on his saxophone (and EWI) since about 1988. He was definitely an influence for me. The void left in the jazz community with his passing is massive.

You will be missed Michael.
