TRUMPETER / COMPOSER / DESIGNER / EDUCATOR
Trumpeter-composer-bandleader-educator-designer Jamie Breiwick dwells in that nether region of America called the heartland. His native Racine, WI is a Warm Valley nestled among several urban musical scenes. He has performed with such notable jazz artists as Adonis Rose, Dan Nimmer, Joe Sanders, Carl Allen, Adam Larson, David Hazeltine, Ralph Bowen, and Matt Wilson. Jamie has performed with Grammy nominated artist Eric Benet, and was featured in his music videos for Warner Brothers, “The Hunger” & “You’re the Only One”. His current musical projects include KASE & Lesser Lakes Trio. Jamie performs every Tuesday and Wednesday night at the historic Pfister Hotel in downtown Milwaukee with pianist Mark Davis.
If you wonder if Milwaukee can sound like New York, give the latest by this trumpeter a spin and wonder no more.
Burst Sessions drew me from the very first notes, which isn’t something I often experience from straight-ahead recordings these days.
This may be a “local” combo, but its artistry is world-class.
Trumpet with a mellow tone, bluesy lines, sounding somewhat gritty and phrasing that keeps you listening intently.
…Breiwick, one of the Milwaukee area’s most intelligent, gifted and resourceful musicians.
… like a master baker, he consistently kneads the thematic material into whole, rounded melodic ideas. As the bandleader, he’s also imaginative and intrepid in delving into the mysterioso depths of the Monk book.
The ever-occupied, constantly creating Breiwick is a musical force of nature.
