The Complete Lester Young on Keynote

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Scott Yanow
This CD has two classic sessions featuring the great tenor saxophonist Lester Young. He is heard with the Kansas City Seven, a small group taken from the Count Basie Orchestra which he had recently rejoined and consisting of trumpeter Buck Clayton, trombonist Dicky Wells, pianist Basie, guitarist Freddie Green, bassist Rodney Richardson, and drummer Jo Jones. The full group plays three jump pieces plus three alternate takes, but the high point of the session is Prez's romp with the rhythm section, trading off with Basie on "Lester Leaps Again."

However, that date is actually overshadowed by the four numbers plus four alternate takes that Young performed with pianist Johnny Guarnieri, bassist Slam Stewart, and drummer Sid Catlett on December 28, 1943. "I Never Knew" and "Afternoon of a Basie-ite" are heated jams, and "Just You, Just Me" is definitive, but it is "Sometimes I'm Happy" especially the originally released version that is truly memorable. The charming Slam Stewart solo singing along with his bass is surpassed only by Prez's absolutely perfect improvisation, which has been quoted many times by later jazz musicians. Highly recommended.
