A departure from previous Surge releases, this one is produced in tandem with the USF Center for Jazz Composition and pays tribute to the compositions of jazz icon, Michael Brecker, by re-envisioning them through the eyes of various arrangers including frequent Brecker collaborators, Gil Goldstein & Vince Mendoza, Vancouver composer Fred Stride (winner of the CJC’s International Jazz Arranging Competition), Dave Stamps, and, of course, Chuck himself. Joining the Surge are a host of special guests (Randy Brecker, Dave Liebman, Joe Lovano, Mike Mainieri, Adam Nussbaum, & Mike Stern) all of whom shared the bandstand on numerous occasions with Brecker. Also back in a prominent role is Rob Thomas, NY based violinist extraordinaire. Tracks include: Peep (Arr. Fred Stride), Slings and Arrows (Arr. Vince Mendoza), Itsbynne Reel (Arr. Chuck Owen), How Long ‘Til the Sun (Arr. Chuck Owen), Sumo (Arr. Dave Stamps), The Mean Time (Arr. Gil Goldstein), Take a Walk (Arr. Chuck Owen), and Everything Happens When You’re Gone (Arr. Chuck Owen)
