Released in 1976 as the follow up to the self-titled Arista
debut album by super musicians (trumpeter) Randy and
(saxophonist) Michael Brecker, BACK TO BACK was issued
under the moniker ‘The Brecker Brothers Band’ as a result
of the inclusion of other key players - Will Lee (bass, lead
vocals); Chris Parker (drums); Don Grolnick (keyboards);
David Sanborn (alto sax); and Steve Khan (guitars).
By the early ‘70s, brothers Randy and Michael found
themselves in demand both on record and on tour after
leaving the progressive jazz-rock-R&B horn band Dreams.
Signed to Arista Records by respected industry executive
Steve Backer, The Brecker Brothers’ first album gained
traction through the R&B chart success of the single
‘Sneakin’ Up Behind You,’ which featured the musicians
who would then tour as ‘The Brecker Brothers Band.’
BACK TO BACK not only featured the super talents of the
Breckers and the extended band but an all-star cast that
included drummer Steve Gadd, percussionists Ralph
MacDonald and Sammy Figueroa, vocalist Patti Austin and
at the time, session and jingle singer Luther Vandross
(who co-wrote two songs on the album).
Key cuts on this expanded edition of the LP (out of print
on CD for many years) include the single, ‘If You Wanna
Boogie…Forget It,’ ‘What Can A Miracle Do’ and ‘Keep It
Steady.’ Extensive liner notes by renowned US writer A.
Scott Galloway include 2012 quotes from Randy Brecker,
David Sanborn, Patti Austin, Will Lee, Steve Parker and
Steve Khan among others.
