Listen to Pilgrimage by Michael Brecker on Deezer.

Pilgrimage is the final studio album by saxophonist Michael Brecker. It was recorded in 2006, released the following year, and won Grammys for Best Jazz Instrumental Album, Individual or Group and Best Jazz Instrumental Solo. In 2005, Brecker announced that he would not give more public performances, because he had myelodysplastic syndrome, which led to leukemia.

Given the heartbreaking context in which this album was released - this was the final recording by saxophonist Michael Brecker, who died of myelodysplastic syndrome and leukemia only a few months before its release - there might be a certain temptation to cut it some slack for sentimental reasons. However, leniency is hardly needed.

Pilgrimage (Michael Brecker album). Despite his losing battle with leukemia, Brecker fully commands each track on the album. The other musicians on the album all were aware of Brecker's condition, and used that knowledge to encourage him and make the album a success. Herbie Hancock said of Brecker: "Michael now has reached a new level as a composer and musician. Despite his disease, or actually because of it, he managed to climb higher mountains and to walk ahead.

Pilgrimage, chronicles Brecker's final journey one in which the music itself served as a sustaining force. Those present in the studio recall moments when the rigors of recording were so physically taxing nearly to the point of collapse for the leader whose health was compromised. In the end, it was Brecker's sheer will, and a dedication to completing the recording, that pushed him, his colleagues and the project as a whole across the finish line  . I just got done listening to Michael Brecker's final album, "Pilgrimage. It was a very intense listen. He recorded this album in August 2006, only five months before his death due to MDS (myelodysplastic syndrome).
