ANTONI O'BRESKEY - THE NOMADIC PIANO PROJECT
Composer, pianist and trumpet player.
Born in Italy with Argentine roots, he introduced improvised-style piano into Irish and Flamenco music during the early 80's, blending it with blues and creating a positively new and original jazz piano style.
“Mesmerizing. O’Breskey takes a few prisoners in his search for the sublime.“
SIOBHAN LONG, THE IRISH TIMES
“He is a man for whom the notion of borders means very little, a genius whose music is without frontiers, and whose originality makes him one of the most innovative artists in the varied musical genres of today.”
OLIVER SWEENEY, HOT PRESS
“The categories of “World” and “New Age” music did not exist when O' Breskey began his trailblazing journey yet he was the first to combine Flamenco, Basque, Arabic, Latin and Irish elements, his virtuoso jazz-styled piano uniting these traditions in remarkably original compositions.”
FIONA RITCHIE, THE CURIOUS LISTENER’S GUIDE TO CELTIC MUSIC, NPR U.S.A.
"A true musical visionary[...] O’Breskey’s musical crossovers have an ethical imperative [...]. He seeks to mesh the majority with the minority, the present with the past, and the vocal with the silenced, so as to 'deflate the ethnocentrism of classical Western music'. For this musician, musical cultures are not defined by borders, but by historical roots that reach deeply across all areas of the globe.”
COLLEEN TAYLOR, THE IRISH ECHO, NEW YORK
