Album Notes
Breggett Rideau

the opportune time...

Breggett Rideau is a Jazz Artist whose time has come. The fact that she is a jazz singer does not limit the influence she has on her audience or her peers. It adds to the magic she creates at every performance. With the release of Breggett's debut CD-The Opportune Time-Breggett Rideau is coming out to make history-her way.

Breggett Rideau pronounced (Breg'-Get Rid-Doe), was born in New Orleans, a graduate of Louisiana State University, where she received her Bachelor's Degree in Natural Science and worked as a Microbiologist for a number of years. Breggett's interest in jazz started when she was just 3 years old. Her father, being a jazz purist, had Nancy Wilson and Carmen McRae records playing day and night. With that kind of start, her encounter with stage and lights was inevitable.

Breggett's music background is as important to her as is the education she received at LSU. And in a short period of time and maximum effort Breggett is in demand well into 2005.

Now with the debut release of "The Opportune Time..." Breggett Rideau has garnered critical acclaim not only from local publications and internet sources, but also from international institutions. By the invitation of Dr. Gene Cho, Ph.D. Regents Professor University of North Texas and Hang Zhou Conservatory, Breggett will perform and lecture at Shanghai Conservatory, Shanghai, China in the spring of 2005. She will make history as the first woman of color / jazz artist from the United States to attend.

Breggett Rideau's horizon reaches far into the future. Her gifts are many and obviously in great demand. Listen to her song and journey in life. You will be forever blessed.

Keith Thomas

Excellent CD of real vocals, musicians and real music
Listen to the appealing pure vocals by Breggett. You'll also hear and enjoy the most dedicated jazz musicians in the business. This is a CD of music the way it used to be when talent was earned by hard work and study. I find it very soothing and comforting. This is an incredible recording and work of art to be enjoyed by all people who appreciate music, especially jazz. It's a must for every music collection.


the best i've heard!!!
the lady can sing!!! great music...that's all there is to it!


A great collection of songs. Breggett Rideau sings soulfully and she is backed by the great pianist Kent Ellingson.

Byron Patrick

Outstanding vocals, great jazz music - appealing to your soul.
Breggett's great voice is clearly heard on this CD. Her vocals brings life to the words of each song. I mean you really feel the emotions of each song. The music was wonderful too! This CD is definitely a pearl to have in your music collection especially for those special moments by yourself or with that special someone.

Breggett Is Boss!!
This CD has become one of my favorite CD's. I played it at my dinner party during the Christmas season and it was a big hit. Breggett is singing her heart out. The personnel are from the very best players I know of in Dallas or any place. You can't go wrong with Kent on piano, Mike on drums, Rick AND Buddy on bass, well let's just say they are really good players. Move on and listen to one of the greatest new kids on the block, young Matt. Well that's all I can tell you on this page, but please get this CD, it is WONDERFUL!
