The Genius of Lenny Breau Remembered" is a richly detailed, personal, and compelling portrait of the master guitarist Lenny Breau. Building upon her award-winning documentary "The Genius of Lenny Breau", first-time director Emily Hughes takes a deeper look into her father's often turbulent life, and ground breaking guitar style. A genre unto himself, Lenny melted musical boundaries, from styles as diverse as country, classical, and flamenco, to invent his innovative jazz techniques. Through interviews with his close friends, family members, luthiers, and fellow musicians, in combination with rare photos, archival footage and recordings, this 135 minute documentary intimately reveals the depth of Lenny's passionate dedication to his craft and the complex, evocative music that was its result. Presented in five chapters, The Genius of Lenny Breau Remembered provides a raw and unvarnished look at the musician's life, lasting influence, and subsequent ubiquity. It is a personal and powerful exploration of his life, music, and his tragic still-unsolved murder.  Less
