Pianist Bryan Wright performs and annotates an exciting and unusual program of piano rags, novelties, tangos, and more. From the stately elegance of classic piano rags by Scott Joplin, James Scott, and Joseph Lamb, to thrilling showpieces by Jean Paques and Frank Banta, to impressionistic mood pieces by Bix Beiderbecke and Eastwood Lane, to contemporary classics by composers like David Thomas Roberts and Martin Spitznagel, Breakin‘ Notes offers a pleasingly-programmed tour of 20th-century syncopated piano music. The accompanying 24-page full-color booklet offers detailed notes for each of the selections. In recent years, Wright has been a featured pianist at the JVC Jazz Festival in New York City and other jazz and ragtime festivals across the United States, including regular appearances at the Scott Joplin International Ragtime Festival. Recorded in 2009. 18 tracks, 65 minutes. Tracks include: Efficiency Rag, Kinklets, Hoosier Rag, Nove de Julho, Keystone Rag.
