He grew up as part of the generation of jazz musicians who saw rock music not as the enemy but as a viable musical option.
Brecker began studying clarinet at age 6, then moved to alto saxophone in eighth grade, settling on the tenor saxophone as his primary instrument in his sophomore year.
After a year at Indiana University he moved to New York City in , where he carved out a niche for himself as a dynamic and exciting jazz soloist.
He first made his mark at age 20 as a member of the jazz-rock band Dreams —a band that included his older brother, trumpeter Randy Brecker , trombonist Barry Rogers , drummer Billy Cobham , keyboardist Jeff Kent and bassist Doug Lubahn.
Dreams was short-lived, lasting only from through , but Miles Davis was seen at some gigs prior to his recording Jack Johnson.
The band followed jazz-funk trends of the time, but with more attention to structured arrangements, a heavier backbeat, and a stronger rock influence.
In he founded the Seventh Avenue South jazz club with his brother Randy. Brecker was in great demand as a soloist and sideman.
He performed with bands whose styles ranged from mainstream jazz to mainstream rock. Altogether, he appeared on over albums, either as a band member or a guest soloist.
He put his stamp on numerous pop and rock recordings as a soloist. His featured guest solos with James Taylor and Paul Simon are examples of that strand of his work.
Brecker played tenor saxophone on two Billy Joel albums. Brecker can be seen in the background sporting sunglasses during Eddie Murphy 's James Brown parody.

His readiness to appear in settings other than pure jazz, and a natural reticence and generosity of spirit that led him to praise others and to back away from any personal aggrandisement, meant that some underestimated his achievement as a jazz musician.
His eloquence was on the saxophone, on which he combined vitality, dazzling technique, a persuasive, gorgeously rich tone, enormous inventiveness and a commanding presence.
From his early twenties onwards, he operated at the highest musical levels. A brief, concise solo from him elevated any pop song on which he played, and it is a testament to him that he could perform unaccompanied, solo sets at both the London and Cheltenham Jazz Festivals in recent years and keep the audiences entranced.
He was, without doubt, the leading tenor saxophonist of his generation, a position none could challenge during his lifetime; nor can we expect anyone to match his stature for many years to come.
Michael Brecker was born in in Philadelphia, into a musical family. His father, a lawyer, played jazz piano, while his sister was a classical pianist.
Michael started on drums, taking up the clarinet aged six, and then moving first to the alto after hearing Cannonball Adderley and then the tenor saxophone under the influence of Coltrane.
He and his brother Randy, three years his senior, used to practise in the bathroom because, he said later, they liked the acoustic.
Michael followed Randy to Indiana University, but left after a year to join his brother in New York, where the two formed the jazz rock band Dreams.
Michael and Randy were to work together throughout the Seventies, providing the horn section for Horace Silver's quintet on the Blue Note album In Pursuit of the 27th Man , and with the Brecker Brothers, the nucleus around which many other leading musicians clustered.
One album title characterised the sound as "heavy metal bebop", which is a good description for the virtuosic, angular lines of the brothers' compositions, underpinned by weighty, electric rhythm sections, and featuring the ever-more powerful and complex yet accessible solos of Michael Brecker in particular.
The band came to an end in , but the brothers united to tour in the early Nineties, sometimes refreshing the sound by playing their material with an acoustic backing band.
Their concerts were always marked by the humour and joy that led both the brothers to be thought of with such affection by their audiences.
It was not until he was 38 that Michael Brecker recorded his first album as a leader. As an innovator of musical form, he may have been right.
Brecker's solo albums are essential because of his playing rather than his compositions, which were always interesting and intelligent.
Their often questing structures reflected elements of his solos; while such an approach was eminently suitable for improvisation, however, it didn't necessarily make for tunes that stuck in the mind.
In terms of harmony, Brecker may not have been a lone innovator, but he was part of a wave of musicians particularly in the early Eighties with Steps who refined jazz fusion, taming it of its electric excesses, and who went on to produce a body of work that showed that jazz did have a valuable route forward.
Their work was proof that the neo-conservative Young Lions movement was wrong in its assertion that jazz had reached a dead end from which the only rescue was complete reimmersion in the past.
And Brecker was definitely wrong in saying he was not a major jazz figure. He was a towering presence quite literally, as he stood at well over six feet tall who defined a new paradigm for what the tenor saxophone could be.
His fluency was unequalled, as was the range of his playing, from twisting, Coltrane-esque sheets of sound, to yelping, funky licks.
There was a greater sense of contemplation in his later work, even before the sharp pain he noticed in his back while performing at the Mount Fuji Jazz Festival in which was the first outward symptom of the disease myelodysplastic syndrome MDS.
He and his family hoped that a bone marrow match could provide a cure. Tens of thousands of donors responded to appeals but all treatment failed, and Brecker died two weeks after completing a final album.
