I first heard ZB on the local 'smooth jazz' station back in '96 or so. It naturally stood out strongly because it is not smooth jazz, or at least what I think of as smooth jazz. Peter White is smooth jazz, with boring drum machines, limited tone, and just plain fluff. ZB represents the long lineage of fine true jazz guitarists that came before him, from Charlie Christian through Wes Montgomery and Grant Green, then George Benson, and now with the likes of Chris Standring and Norman Brown. This is real music, with soul and punch, and great variety of moods on one disc. It's worth every penny. I also have Laidback and Groovin' (which I found in a Tucson used music store in '99, after searching for a copy for 6 months...) They are both wonderful, full of passion, with a little bit of an edge. This music will keep you smiling.

I am korean. I heard Cafe Reggio when I was in New York for my studying. Sometimes I heard it from WQ CD 101.9 that is smoohtjazz station in New York. But at that time I did not know the musitian and title. It took about a week to find out this music and musitian. I happened to find smoothjazz guitar album and wrote down names of the players. I searched all of them name by name in this amazon address. Finally I fount this. This passion shows the degree I like this music. Easy melody and very wonderful sound

In this order I must say, Groovin', Laidback and Uptown Groove. Too bad Zach is gone, his cd's will always be in an important place among my other cd's. After 2:00 Am on the East Coast is a relaxed song for making you think of your most emotional experiences. I have the idea of how Zach creates his music and puts so much effort into it, since he plays many instruments. Knowing Zachary has always been a caring and emotional person, all of that show in his music. I love this life too Zach. Be sure we will all be Thinking of Alexis. Your inheritage has made me believe in music, in musicians doing what they love.

This is one of the best new jazz guitarists around and similar to Norman Brown. Zach's version of the Issac Hayes tune from the movie Shaft, "Cafe Reggio" is remarkable. His other album "Groovin" is even better - if you can find it.

Zachary Breaux shares his talents with us again on "Uptown Groove", the follow-up to the stellar "Laidback" release. The music has a pleasant range from cool jazz to funky R&B, and the melodies will sound great at first, and better with each listen. I've had it in constant rotation in my changer for almost a year now, which is saying a lot for a 400 CD collection. Zachary's guitar has that Wes Montgomery/George Benson sound, only he avoids the string section that those two tended to add, which always reminded me of easy listening. It's too bad Zachary has passed on, I was looking forward to more of his great sound.

The product arrived earlier than promised and worked perfectly. Zachary Breaux's interpretation of "Cafe Reggio" is my favorite. The Thrill is gone is a perfect foil to BB King's universal performances. BB King's popularity makes this version work. I loved "All Blues" almost as much as "Cafe Reggio". "Uptown Groove" has great energy, it pulled me in and the performance is laudable, but it is upstaged by "All Blues" and " Cafe Reggio". This was my introduction to "I Love This Life". Good idea putting history to musics in this genre; the oral tradition continues. I will have to listen again.

I love every track on this CD especially Cafe' Reggio. Zachery Breaux is a fine jazz guitarist. They don't seem to come any better. Some tracks have a touch of blues in them - wonderful to listen to. I believe his Groovin' CD is just as good IF you can lay your hands on it.
