Thanks! Share it with your friends!


Live at Bourbon St. is a live album by guitarist Lenny Breau and bassist Dave Young that was released in 1995. It was nominated for a 1997 Juno Award in the category of Best Mainstream Jazz Album.

Writing for Allmusic, critic Scott Yanow gave the album 5 out of 5 stars and wrote: “The music (full of close musical communication) is subtle and quiet yet consistently inventive. It is obvious after a few minutes of listening that Breau had complete control of his guitar and an original voice of his own…. Overall this two-fer gives one a definitive portrait of the nearly forgotten legend.”
