Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Tenor-saxophonist Lester Young (1909-1959) was the most original jazz improviser of the era between Louis Armstrong and Charlie Parker. This book retrieves long out-of-print biographical essays and musical studies, a few never before published, as well as a collection of Young's interviews and a selection of rare photographs.
