Remembering Grant Greenby Joshua Breakstone
Originally recorded for the Japanese King label and reissued as an Evidence CD in 1996, this is a logical tribute album. Guitarist Joshua Breakstone, like the late Grant Green, rarely ever plays chords or accompanies anyone else, sticking to single-note solos. On five pieces (two Green originals plus "Street of Dreams," "Moon River" and Duke Pearson's "Idle Moments"), Breakstone jams with organist Jack McDuff and drummer Al Harewood in a fine soul-jazz trio. The two remaining numbers ("Falling In Love With Love" and Irving Berlin's "Remember") find Breakstone leading a conventional acoustic quartet also including pianist Kenny Barron, bassist Ray Drummond and drummer Keith Copeland. Overall, the music is predictably swinging and well-played, but no real surprises or revelations occur.
