O’s Notes: Jacob (Jake) Breaks is an East Coast DJ who teamed up with West Coast, jazz-rock, Throttle Elevator Music (TEM) to produce Breaksy. Even though Jake drove across the US for this gig, he had enough energy to bring home the 70s jazz-funk groove with a few new hip-hop, party vibes. The cast is wide but is centered on TEM’s Gregory Howe (g, synths, d, perc), Matt Montgomery (b, p) and Ross Howe (g, b, p). This one will keep your pulse up!
