USA: Joshua Breakstone - Children Of Art (Capri 2018)

Children Of Art
Joshua Breakstone's latest recording, Children of Art is a tribute to Art Blakey's Jazz Messengers and is made up of compositions written by members of that hallowed band. Hundreds of great young musicians were a part of this group over the 60 year tenure of the band, all with youthful energy and enthusiasm under Blakey's mentorship. The compositions Breakstone selected were written and recorded by the musicians while they were with the band. They include Lee Morgan, Wayne Shorter, Horace Silver, Hank Mobley, Benny Golson, Cedar Walton and Walter Davis Jr. The title track is an original composition by Breakstone.
