    I forgot to mention my all time favorite jazz guitarist, Lenny Breau.
    Lenny is considered a Canadian artist, and his parents were both Francophone Canadians, but Lenny was born in Auburn, Maine.
    Perhaps he had dual citizenship.
    He was a fascinatingly brilliant mess.
    His murderer got away with it.
    Beyond sad.
