Nathan Breedlove displays great jazz chops at a time before he came to front the popular Skatalites.
His trumpet sounds great, falling onto the spirit of the undertaking from the onset. Listen to how his
solo on Rob sustains the rowdy flights of Moondoc's cadenza, then how he finishes by suddenly
breaking into a bump-and-grind riff, underscoring the unseriousness at the
heart of the number. - Lou Kannenstine, Eremite Records.
They're extremely talented; Wallace Roney can play his ass of; Wynton, Terence Blanchard, Roy
Hargrove, and this guy Nathan Breedlove. - Lester Bowie, Downbeat July 1992.
Under-recorded Breedlove is suprisingly agile and charmingly ragged, with a clear debt to Don
Cherry and Bobby Bradford. - Steve Loewy, All Music Guide
As expected, the Skatalites put on one of the best sets of this year's New Orleans Jazz Fest
