August 5, 1941 – August 12, 1984


Lenny Breau was interesting because he introduced country music stylings into his jazz work.

Composed by Henry Mancini, 1962's “Days of Wine and Roses” is from a film that year with the same name. Mancini would win an Academy Award for the work – “Best Original Song.” Along with Breau, it's been covered by Wes Montgomery and even Perry Como.

The title comes from Ernst Dowson's poem “Vitae Summa Brevis.”
