Lenny Breau on Bass Guitar

I've finally gotten around to reading the Lenny Breau biography, One Long Tune, and it is a very interesting book. Lenny played some jazz bass on various jazz gigs early on, and he was apparently very, very good. The author mentioned a recording that was done in the early '60s (maybe 1962) at University of Alberta where he played some incredible bass, and I thought maybe it was somewhere online. However, I have not been able to find anything. I've taken a few lessons on bass in recent months from an accomplished jazz bassist/instructor, and I feel like he's really helped me musically. Anyway, I find myself listening to different bass players, and now I'm curious about hearing Lenny Breau's bass playing. Just wondering if anyone knows anything about it.
