RE: Steps Ahead / Michael Brecker

Can you tell us more about Stern....he's a great player. Was he using
the Roland JC 120 amps with the heavy processing with chorus and delay?
I still love his "Is What It Is".

Subject: Steps Ahead / Michael Brecker

Last Monday I attended a mind-blowing concert by Steps Ahead: Mike
Mainieri (vibes), Mike Stern (g), Richard Bona (b), Steve Smith (dr).
Unfortunately, Michael Brecker was missing (Bill Evans stepped in for
him) and we were informed that Michael appears to be seriously ill with
myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS, see http://www.mds-foundation.org/) for
which he is undergoing treatment.
The best get well wishes to him!
