six year hiatus, since the passing of Jazz Cat Record’s co-founder Raj Rathor, his widow Diana Smith is renewing Raj’s fervent desire to share his personal recordings from Lenny Breau’s gigs at Donte’s in Los Angeles just months before Lenny’s untimely death Aug.12, 1984.
Jazz Cat Records is releasing a double CD of new Lenny Breau material. Recorded live in the last year of his life at Donte’s in L.A., CA. The performances surpass Lenny’s earlier trio recordings, superlative as they are, as Lenny had achieved total consummate mastery of his 7 string guitar. Thus, they represent the quintessential Lenny Breau Trio recordings. The Trio consists of: Lenny Breau: 7 string guitar, John Patitucci: Upright Bass, Ted Hawke: Drums. This CD will be available exclusively at Jazz Cat Records on May 1. JazzCatRecords.com
