My Playlist - Kevin Breit
No question, Kevin Breit is a one-off. Technically, there’s nothing he can’t play. Jazz, blues, pop, world. And each time he plays it, it's different — unless you want it to be the same. Actor Hugh Laurie may have said it best: “Kevin Breit never plays the same thing once.”
And Laurie is just one in a long list of artists who could say the same thing. Breit has toured or recorded with a long list of top artists: Rosanne Cash, Cassandra Wilson, k.d. lang, Molly Johnson, Serena Ryder and Norah Jones, to name a few.
Then there are his own projects: 20 albums, most of them over the past 10 years.
Breit approached his My Playlist session with the same "Let's do it!" vibe. It includes tracks by Mos Def, the Be Good Tanyas, Oh Susanna and Drake.
My Playlist airs Sunday at 3 p.m. (3:30 NT) and Wednesday at 7 p.m. (7:30 NT) on CBC Radio 2.
