. The record is both cinematic and intimate, reflecting perfectly the scope of Breckerʼs emotional play.

Evergreen tracks include “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.
