Breggett Rideau 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 food microbiologist for a number of years. Her interest in jazz started when she was three years old, as her father, being a jazz purist, had Nancy Wilson and Carmen McRae records playing day and night.
After her first release, The Opportune Time, Rideau garnered critical acclaim not only from local publications, 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 performed and lectured at Shanghai Conservatory, Shanghai, China in the spring of 2005. She was the first woman of color / jazz artist from the United States to attend.
