Breakstone is also coming here to do his Blakey tribute this month.  I'm only familiar with him by name, but I am looking forward to hearing him.  He'll have Aidan Plank (an excellent local bassist) and Jim Rupp (of Hank Marr fame!) joining him.  I bet the Hayden/Dobbins pair would really work with the Blakey material, too.
