"In the Idiom." Randy Brecker. Denon. In this all too rare appearance by Brecker as an uncompromising jazzman, he plays eight neatly arranged original works, with first-rate backing by Joe Henderson on tenor sax, pianist David Kikoski, Ron Carter on bass, and Al Foster on drums. "You're in My Heart" shows Brecker's original approach to ballad writing, with a beat. "There's a Mingus A Monk Us" lives up to its quirky title. All told, the 57 1/2 minutes of music reflect the more purely emotional and less strictly functional aspects of the trumpeter's talent. *** 1/2
