Patrick Breiner Interview

From Jazz Right Now:

Patrick Breiner is a tenor saxophonist with an array of fresh ideas who performs regularly in Brooklyn and other parts of New York City. His animated performances and personal touch are designed to establish a connection with each individual member of the audience. He is gifted not only as an instrumentalist but aims to be “a performer who specializes in music.” His Sulde label, featuring the design of Connie Wang, brands his unique aesthetic in handmade packaging.

Breiner leads and co-leads a number of innovative groups. His band Double Double, a quartet with two basses (Will McEvoy and Adam Hopkins) and drums (Flin van Hemmen), is set to release its debut record, Mileage at Korzo, April 1, at 9 pm. He has released three records with his solo act, Vartan Mamigonian. He also co-leads the group VAX set to release its second album, Count to VAX (vinyl only) at Downtown Music Gallery, March 30, 7 pm, before embarking on a European tour (details below). He also co-leads Premoticon (with a new record out last month), and Sons of Daughters.
