The Nearness of You Concert – In Honor of Michael Brecker
On January 28 James will join Randy Brecker, Hugh Jackman, Patti Austin, Harolyn Blackwell and more for a tribute concert honoring the late Michael Brecker at Jazz at Lincoln Center. Michael Brecker was an award winning saxophonist who featured James on his 2001 album Nearness of You: The Ballad Book. He passed away from leukemia in 2007, and proceeds from this performance will support cancer research. Tickets are going quickly, but a few remain at Jazz.org.
