He was the personification Miss Thing (Pt. 1) - Lester Young - Classic Columbia the art of swing and a master of creative ballad interpretation. He was one of the early innovators who laid the groundwork for bop and was the principal, as it were, of the cool school.
Most Lester Young collections are well worth investigating, simply because his recorded legacy is filled with exciting Natural Black - Rumours Of War beautiful moments. This is by no means a complete chronological survey of every studio session that Pres and Basie participated in during the second half of the '30s. There are a lot of gaps; most conspicuous is the omission of Basie 's Decca sessions that took place between andimportant years in the development of Lester Young and the Basie band.
Note also that 29 of the 83 titles are additional, sometimes multiple takes. These are heaped together at the end of each CD, with disc three consisting of ten master takes followed by ten alternates. This compilation is at once thorough and incomplete, its layout both meticulous and perhaps unevenly constructed, for had they not ladled on the alternates so prodigiously there would have been plenty of room for every single master take from each studio session that Basie and Pres participated in together during this time period, even with 24 months' worth of Deccas left out of the picture.
Clearly, the masters and alternates were chosen as glowing examples of inspired collaboration, with plenty of opportunities for careful comparison.
