Noted New York be-bop guitarist Joshua Breakstone has just added a stop in Baltimore to his world tour. (He tours twice each year in Japan, Europe and in the U.S.)

"Fire in velvet. A fitting description of Joshua Breakstone's jazz guitar." —The Santa Fe New Mexican, Paul Weidman

Breakstone's playing emphasizes inventive, lyrical single-note melody lines. Though his fingers have been described as 'continual blur' onstage,he never lets frenetic technique detract from his interesting melodies which always have both intellegence and feeling behind them. Breakstone says 'Jazz should sing, be pretty to listen to, and feel good',and he is true to his philosophy. To anyone who has heard him, it is clear he is on his way to making his mark as one of the great jazz instrumentalists." —The Bass Clef, London, England
