Interview with Randy Brecker

Versione italiana

Today I publish an interview with the American trumpeter Randy Brecker, that I met on July 23rd, 2007 in Matera at the end of a concert in which he played together with saxophonist (and wife) Ada Rovatti and the Lucanian Big Band directed by Dino Plasmati.

During his career Randy Brecker won five Grammy Awards, mixing frequently jazz with different kinds of musical influences. He played with some of the greatest musicians of the Twentieth Century (among which Frank ZappaCharles Mingus and Jaco Pastorius) and with the most famous rockers (Bruce Springteen e Dire Straits, among the others). Together with his saxophonist brother Michael (passed away on January 13th, 2007) he founded the Brecker Brothers, one of the most influent fusion band of the ’70s.

Welcome to "Parole di musica" (Music in words)

Hello! It’s quite strange to write the first post for the English version of this blog. It’s strange because while I feel like a newbie who needs to introduce himself to the readers, at the same time this blog is celebrating the hundredth post in the Italian version, inaugurating this English area and refreshing a bit the graphic design.
So, who am I, and what is this blog about? My name is Filippo Maria Caggiani, I’m a music journalist, and this blog is – quite obviously – a music blog.
Trying to make a super-summary of the previous hundred posts, I could say that this blog was born in 2006, when I wanted to take note of a four months’ period of staying in Portugal. Then, focusing more on the music topic, I started to make exclusive interviews to some artists (available as podcast), analyzing tunes, reporting breaking music news, or simply writing my points of view about music events. Sometimes happened to watch music things from a slightly different perspective, like when I lived in Germany for some months, or like now that I’m living in Poland.
By the way, there are a lot of different ways in which the world of music can be told through music in words.
Just stay tuned!
