Overview

With his elegant, liquid tenor sax style, Lester Young invented the "cool" years before the term became common coinage, and he has been a huge influence on numerous modern jazz sax players. This generous set features recordings from the 1930s and '40s, some of them in sessions led by Young and some with Count Basie, Billie Holiday and others. This material, drawn from labels like Savoy, Keynote and Commodore, has been available in numerous compilations over the years (including several with the exact same title), and while this collection is hardly singular, it presents the vital early years of Young as well as any.
