I believe it was 1953 when Mr Breedon ans I met . I played the baratone sax for the Grand Praire High School . Mr Breedon had just started leading our school band.
I went to his home several times and helped him paint the rooms. It was a pleasure just to be around him .

One day I brought an old metal clarinet to practice and ask him to check it out, because I couldn't get much out of it. Mr Breedon proceeded to play the most beautiful songs on that old clarinet . After he finished, I said to him, without blinking an eye....I guess it's me and not the clarinet? His look told me all I needed to know.

My dad loved Leon Breeden. He took me to see the One O'Clock Lab Band at Scott Theater and the band was awesome, some really good musicians. His name was Jack Harrell and he played the bass fiddle and bass horn(in the TCU marching band. He will be missed as a a great inspiration to young musicians.

In 1970 I was a ninth grader playing the alto sax, and one afternoon our band director was playing the NTSU 1:00 Lab'69 album. I had never heard anything like it. I convinced him to let me take it home (on the school bus !), made a cassette copy of it until my own copy arrived in the mail. I must have played it 500 times over the years. I have many other LPs and CDs by NTSU and other jazz artists, and that is still my all time favorite jazz album. It made me appreciate good music and great musicianship. What an outstanding legacy of work Mr. Breeden has left us. We are all grateful for what he did with his life. Most sincerely, Larry Satterfield
