Joshua Breakstone Trio: Tribute To Art Blakey's Jazz Messengers - BOP STOP  at The Music Settlement - Cleveland

October, 2019 marks the 100th anniversary of the birth of the great jazz drummer Art Blakey. Guitarist Joshua Breakstone will be touring throughout the US from September-November in support of the October release of his new recording on Capri Records, “Children of Art”, a tribute to Art Blakey and the Jazz Messengers. On the new recording, Joshua plays with drummer Eliot Zigmund (well known from his years with Bill Evans) and bassist Martin Wind (current member of the trios of Bill Mays, Dena DeRose, Bill Cunliffe, Ann Hampton Callaway, Ted Rosenthal, and Matt Wilson's Quartet "Arts and Crafts”).We are happy to have him at BOP STOP on October 22 as part of his fall ’19 tour appearing with bassist Aidan Plank and drummer Jim Rupp.---------A fine bop-based guitarist, Joshua Breakstone discovered jazz when he was 14. He studied for several years with Sal Salvador, yet at the time was gigging regularly with a rock group. He attended Berklee, and in 1977, toured Canada with the reed player Glen Hall, making his recording debut on Hall's Sonora release. During and after teaching guitar at the Rhode Island Conservatory of Music (1979-1981), Breakstone worked in New York with Warne Marsh, Emily Remler, Dave Schnitter, and Vic Juris. In 1983, he recorded his first album (Wonderful!) for Sonora. While that date had Barry Harris on piano, his follow-up featured Kenny Barron. Breakstone went on to record for Contemporary (including a quartet date featuring Pepper Adams), Capri, Evidence, and Double-Time, helping keep the legacy of quiet bop guitar alive.http://joshuabreakstone.com/https://www.cpt12.org/local/now-in-production/breakstone/https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kH9rDE4r2B4Tickets are $15 adv / $20 at the door
