Alan Brecker

    Alan is a solo pianist/entertainer with just the right mixture of classical technique and an innate sense of swing.

    “Seldom have the talents of a pianist reached the epitome of pleasurable listening as with Alan’s musical performance. His unique style is evident in his creativity with the popular music of Berlin, Cole Porter and the like. Surprisingly, he is equally at home with the discipline of the classics. Alan truly has a love for the piano which asserts itself during performances. Combine this with his sense of humour and you have a very enjoyable evening of entertainment.”

    – NY Times Music critic and NBC Musical Playwright, the late Robert E. Lewis
