Format: Audio CD
Lenny Breau revolutionized the solo guitar field. More than Leo Kottke, John Fahey, Tuck Andress, or Joe Pass. Breau had all the chops down and could play any style as you will hear on this C.D. "Feelings", and "Paris" are stand outs on this album. The themes, as they are introduced, are reasonably standard but once he gets going no one is as lyrical or technical as Lenny Breau. His use of country, flamenco, jazz, classical, rock, and indian musics all comibined make a sound like no one else. This is a very ethereal approach to guitar and lenny breau, besides being a great musician is also an incredible composer. His improvisation sections are stunning in their fluidity, it never sounds contrived like Tuck Andress' horribly stilted improvisation sections. Breau could truly speak through his guitar. This album is flawless, and yes, there is one song with two guitars but it is credited, and obvious. It was done, I believe, for the sake of adding more harmonics, and for an experiment. This album, remains flawless in my mind and any fan of the musical styles mentioned above, or just great guitar playing, should buy this album. Lenny is the best ever!

Man... wow. July 14 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I have been a professional musician for some time now, and somehow I have escaped hearing the under-recorded, under-mentioned and underrated guitar virtuoso (and i don't use that term loosely) Lenny Breau... until now. All i can say is Man... wow. This is a true musician with lots to say on his instrument and some unorthodox techniques that never ever get in the way of musicianship and a clear statement. Breau's use of artificial harmonics throughout the CD is stunning. The real standout for me is "Feelings," an ordinarily trite, cheesy little tune that Breau turns into an impressionist-tinted masterpiece This cut is actually a medley, with a hip little segue into "here's that rainy day" in the middle, before a nice rendition of "It Could Happen to You." None of these additional tunes are listed in the CD notes. The only disappointment for me was finding out that "I Love You" was actually two guitars (Both Lenny) overdubbed... this I feel is out of character and not a very organic or kosher practice, especially for a solo guitar whiz like Breau. It appears the overdubbed guitar is merely walking a bass line. I still can't name the "untitled standard..." i thought at first that it was "Yours is my heart alone" but i don't think that's what it is actually. You got me. I wonder about the people reissuing these CDs and their knowledge of this music or music in general. They credited Cole Porter's "I Love You" to Breau and Victor Young's "Beautiful Love" to Breau as well. These tunes are jazz standards and I don't see how anyone with even an beginner-intermediate knowledge of standard jazz repertoire could miss these obvious, fairly straightforward readings of standard tunes, as well as failing to list the other tunes in the Feelings medley and researching the title of the "Untitled Standard". Overall though, i'm quite satisfied with my purchase, and I expect to buy more Breau in the near future.

Notes on song credits & compositions March 4 2007
By PH-50-NC - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
An earlier reviewer noted the lack of mention of song titles in the "Feelings" medley (identified on the CD only as "Feelings"), and also wondered about the identity of the "Untitled Standard". About the "Untitled Standard", while I'm not 100% sure that Lenny isn't playing an existing composition, I don't think he is; "Untitled Improvisation" would have been more accurate. He starts out with a melody that's very similar to "On Green Dolphin Street", but isn't that tune. He then changes course and throws down a long series of bebop lines, and briefly quotes the "Milestones" from the 1958 Miles Davis record of that name.

Both this CD and "Five O'Clock Bells/Mo' Breau" are on the Genes label, a label based in Silver Springs, MD. that I've never come across before or since (a Gene Rosenthal is listed as Producer on these CDs, so it was probably a labor-of-love project done by him). In 1988, when these were released, there was little or no other Breau CDs on the market, and his Lps weren't that easy to find either. These two discs do have a very homemade presentation, and there are no composer credits listed on "Last Sessions" (which also omits the recording dates, probably because Breau lived another seven years or so before his mysterious death). But, regardless of whether or not the packaging is up to the standards of the Guitarchives releases like "Live at Bourbon St.", the music solid Breau. Breau the free spirit / guitar genius is just playing what he feels like playing on these sessions (particularly on this "Last Sessions" disc, which is more exploratory than the cuts that made it on to "Five O'Clock Bells" and "Mo' Breau") - the disc has a very 1970s feel to it in that respect, although pianist Art Tatum was doing something like this type of rhapsodizing jazz in the 1940s and 1950s.

you cannot go wrong with any Lenny Breau album, his performances in NY were packed with other pro musicians. None are better.
