Twenty years ago, the legendary jazz saxophonist Michael Brecker put out his dynamic recording “Time Is of the Essence” and the jazz world took notice. This fall, North Florida-based drummer Ben Adkins is looking forward to introducing the exciting material to a new generation through a mini-tour of concerts and workshops across the region, with internationally acclaimed saxophonist Seamus Blake in the tenor role.
“Time Is of the Essence” was Michael Brecker’s sixth album as a leader. The nine infectious tunes showcase the band’s awesome versatility, with concise power, blazing solos, and an abundance of drive and intensity. The compositions, including five Brecker originals, ranging from the funky to the haunting to the introspective, with subtle cookers tucked into the mix.
