  1. Tracks A1 to B2 Recorded January 13th Track B3 Recorded January 12th A compilation of tracks originally released on the albums The Lester Young-Teddy Wilson Quartet - Pres And Teddy and The Jazz Giants '56 - The Jazz Giants '
  2. Label variation Previously-released material from Norgran and Verve labels: m, m, m, and m A1 - B3 with Teddy Wilson recorded in New York City, January 13, /5(1).
  3. Popular belief holds that Prez's pre-military service recordings can't be topped but this collection of the tenor sax marvel's s sessions with Oscar Peterson rank among his very best. The rhythm tunes are complete joys and Young's ballad mastery on tracks such as "I Can't Get Started" and "There Will Never Be Another You" has yet to be matched.
  4. When three out of four of one's most significant musical influences are on the same album, it's sheer heaven. In my case, Lester Young - Pres - is my number one musical inspiration, Jo Jones' influence on me as a drummer is encoded in my DNA, and Teddy Wilson is one of my "trinity of pianists' (along with Bud Powell and Thelonious Monk).
  5. This extraordinary record by Lester Young has to figure in everyone's discotheque.A real must. Here is a quartet you can dream of: Lester,Teddy Wilson on piano,Gene Ramey on bass and the Master,the greatest jazz drummer of all times, Jo Jones.(don't confuse him with Philly Joe Jones).Reviews:

  7. Feb 17,  · If you're looking for vinyl, towards the end of the lp era Columbia issued a series of 2-lp sets entitled "The Lester Young Story". Volume 1 featured some of the Billie Holiday sides that Lester played on along with his early sides with Basie that were issued under a different name to get around Basie's Decca contract.
  8. Teddy Wilson is always a beautiful pianist to listen to, and here his performance excels. Drummer Jo Jones always provides a reliable swinging foundation, as does bassist Gene Ramey. The original vinyl LP had just six tracks, six wonderful ballads all given the Jones / Young /5(53).
