Tomorrow's Hours Review

by Scott Yanow

Guitarist Joshua Breakstone pays tribute to Wes Montgomery on this set, performing eight of the late guitarist's compositions plus his own "Tomorrow's Hours." Montgomery was not really known as a composer, although the songs that Breakstone has chosen are mostly pretty inventive, even if few (other than "Twisted Blues" and "Jingles") are that well-known. Joined by bassist Earl Sauls and drummer Keith Copeland, Breakstone emulates Montgomery's style in a few spots (utilizing octaves a little more than usual), but mostly plays in his own complementary voice. The music is straight-ahead and swinging and is as easily recommended as all of Joshua Breakstone's recordings.
