5.0 out of 5 stars WOW! 9 July 2002
Format:Audio CD
This is just an absolute JEWEL. Zappa fans will recognize Terry Bozzio in addition to the Brecker brothers themselves, and MAN, what a combo! Michael Brecker just shreds on every solo, and Randy finds nuances with the "electric trumpet" that have never been heard before or since. Some will want this for the novelty of the electric tenor sax and trumpet, but there are FINE examples of modern BeBop solos here, over a high-powered rhythm section that kicks and jumps all over everything the soloists lay down. This is the kind of rhythm section that can make ANYBODY sound good, but the Brecker brothers talent is unmatched; a combination that presents an order of magnitude. Bass players NEED to hear Neil Jason, and guitar players NEED to hear Barry Finnerty on this. Blistering tight unison lines will prove once again why Zappa saved his most intricate horn passages for these guys, and why you won't hear them at tempo with anybody else. I sincerely hope for more of this largely unexplored flavor of jazz. I haven't found anything else that quite measures up to this.

3.0 out of 5 stars Neither Heavy Metal nor Be-Bop 16 Aug 2014
By Barmee
Format:Audio CD
I hate to be the one to pour some cold water on the other reviews here but I suggest approaching this release with a modicum of caution.
The key emotion it left me with is that it feels dated. At time it was released (late 1970s) it may have been a big step forward - but now (2014) it feels like one long instrumental break from an unreleased Frank Zappa album.
Obviously not a bad thing in itself but I was hoping for some sort of 'genre meld' that would blow my mind. What I got was a live album of workman like jazz-funk and whooping fans).
Good musicianship but (other than East River, the funky vocal track at the start) pretty forgettable stuff.
Neither fish nor fowl - nor even a mix of the two!
Interesting - but not essential.

This is as it says on the label, heavy & frantic jazz rock which is great in smallish doses. I bought it for the track East river This album is about 40 minutes which is about right ,I think any longer would would be a bit much. I will check out other albums by these guys.

5.0 out of 5 stars It's exactly what it says it is 5 Jan 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
What does be-bop accompanied by a very loud rock band sound like? That's this album in one; after a (sort-of) meaningful discussion with friends; that's the conclusion I've reached.
East River is a straightforward Rock track. But then it all changes for the rest of the album. Make sure you put your seat belt on.
It's recorded live, it's very heavy, raw rock-funk-jazz; the sound of skunk-funk jumps out with real menace and chases you round the block shouting; I will even go as far to say that if Punk rock had a horn section, this is how it would've sounded; and considering the album was recorded in 1978, one can only surmise. The Brecker Brothers Band ROOOOOOOOOOOOOCKS.
Oh, one more thing; Randy Brecker does NOT sing.....
