Joshua Breakstone

”Fire in velvet. A fitting description of Joshua Breakstone's jazz guitar,” wrote Paul Weidman in The Sante Fe New Mexican. “His flowing lines on up-tempo cookers are impeccably clean and fiery, bearing the mark of a first-rate improviser, while his chordal work on heartbreaker ballads is the final word in finesse,” has raved Guitar Player magazine. Japan's Jazz Hihyo (aka Jazz Critique) recognizes that “The style in which Joshua develops his fluid single-note solos used to be thought of as the Grant Green school, but now this man leads the school.” Downbeat also has written that “There is no shortage of young, knock-out jazz guitarists about us these days. And Joshua Breakstone is among the best of them.”
