Two of the Best at Their Best

"What a beautiful set of immaculate improvisations! God, the sound is so good! Usually upright bass is recorded live so that it brings out all the finger noise. Not so here. So clean, so sweet.

If you are not familiar with Lenny Breau, what a treat these 2 CD's can be for you. Here using a great sounding custom 7 string guitar with a high 'A' string! Considered by the best of the jazz and country worlds to be the best living guitarist in his lifetime, he lives up to his reputation here. I have everything I can get that Lenny did, and this is my favorite alongside "The Complete Livingroom Tapes." He had incredible technique and prowess, truly killer chops. On this recording he has deepened and grown beyond anything purely physical or technical about music on a guitar. He comunicates with heartfelt passion and soul, so fully, so clearly, so cleanly, and so...transcendently. It's hard to believe how beautiful this music is. God, I love it! Please invite Lenny to live on in your life and ears, too."
It doesn't get any better than this...

"To any fan of jazz and anyone who plays guitar in general, this album is a must have. Breau's playing on great standards is just unbelievable and there is much to be learned from his style. A highly under rated player who deserves more credit. Regardless, he burns on this cd and it should be owned by all."

"Acording to the book "one long tune" very fev of lennys albums vere Lenny in good form. Often he had not the nervs to play in studio, or he was on drugs.This was the case on Five O'Clock Bells/Mo' Breau and Cabin Fever, although these albums are greate. But on this album, Lenny is at his very best.
Lennys goal was to play the guitar like the piano, and Bill Evans was his favorit piano player. He worked on this for 20 years. He sure made it.'
Dave Young knew and respethed Lenny and his music, and the result is marvelus.
On this album Lenny plays just the way he feels like, totally free.
The thing with his playing that make me call it unbelivable, is his harmonich, the way he plays like a piano player, and he does it totally spontanius. If You Could See Me Now, My Foolish Heart, I Fall In Love To Easily, Two Lonely People, are just increddible.
This is the best electric guitarwork I have ever heard, and the more you lissen, the more you hear.
The sound is greate and the interplay vith Dave Young is unncanny.
