New York - Half Note Records is pleased to present trumpeter Randy Breckerʼs latest musical venture, a collaboration with the Danish Radio Big Band (DRBB) and the Danish National Chamber Orchestra. This formidable partnership provides a special opportunity for Brecker, actuating what many will consider to be a "career record."

Breckerʼs incomparable contribution to contemporary music spans several decades. The Jazz Ballad Song Book explores the contours of 10 compelling American songs, penned by a cadre of jazzʼs premier arrangers, including Grammy winner Vince Mendoza. The record is both cinematic and intimate, reflecting perfectly the scope of Breckerʼs emotional play.

Evergreen tracks inlcude "Cry Me a River," "All Or Nothing At All," "Someday My Prince Will Come" and "Skylark."

Jeff Levenson, EVP of Half Note Records and long-standing admirer of Brecker, says: "Randy has achieved true emeritus status. He remains a figure who embodies the soul of jazz trumpet. His partnership with the DR Big Band is a perfect marriage, featuring pointed, often wistful, solos measured against hip arrangements, beautifully executed."
