Late next month, the Brecker Brothers’ entire Arista Records catalog will be released in a new box set format. The Brecker Brothers: The Complete Arista Albums Collection collects the group’s six albums released on Arista between 1975 and 1981. None of the albums have ever been released on CD in the US.
During the span of those albums, the Brecker Brothers recorded with an all-star cast of bassists, including Marcus Miller, Will Lee, Tony Levin and Neil Jason.
The box set includes all new liner notes by trumpeter Randy Brecker, along with rare photos and a detailed discography. Two bonus albums are also bundled in: one featuring the group’s 1979 Montreux Jazz Festival performance, with Levin holding down the low end.
The Brecker Brothers: The Complete Arista Albums Collection is available for pre-order.
