John Kelman on Lenny Breau

Canadian guitarist John Kelman is an accomplished music writer, and also the Managing Editor of All About Jazz, the Internet’s most popular jazz website.  When he was 11 years old and taking guitar lessons in Ottawa, John’s instructor encouraged him to go to a local coffee shop to see the guitarist Lenny Breau perform.  It was a decision that would come to have a deep impact on his musical development.

Several more times over the years John saw him live, and on one occassion his guitar instructor, who knew Lenny, actually introduced him to Lenny Breau before a show.
