As a band, the Brecker Brothers were part of the initial contemporary jazz flowering in the late '70s and early '80s, with their seamless, driving mélange of jazz, funk, pop, soul, and fusion. Saxophonist Michael and trumpeter Randy had issued a slew of records between 1975 and 1982 as the Brecker Brothers, but studio and touring commitments with other units and individuals kept them from recording as a band again for 12 years. Return of the Brecker Brothers was released in 1992 on Dave Grusin's GRP imprint

The Brecker Brothers were one of the bands there with their "skunk funk" at the beginning, when the genre hit its stride in the early 70s. This was their first album since 1980. HIGHLIGHTS: Jazz purists will hate the hip-hop influenced "Big Idea" but it has one of the better musical grooves on the album to my ears. I think the addition of Veera's electronicly altered voice was a bit much though. Peppy somewhat Latin flavoured "Above and Below" reminds me a bit of Chick Corea Elektric Band . Randy Brecker makes an ill-advised attempt at singing on "That's All There is to It", a self-penned tune that's no great shakes in the lyric department though the skewed reggae arrangement is at least occasionally interesting musically.
