Centennial Celebration Lester Young by Andrew Velez. Profiles To His 100th Birthday. The Lester Young/Count Basie Sessions 1936-1940 by AAJ Staff. Being Prez: The Life & Music of Lester Young. Live at Birdland by Graham L. Flanagan. The Complete Studio Sessions On Verve by AAJ Italy Staff.

In the process, he also created a new way to play jazz, developing a flowing, melodic inventiveness and a detachment that would influence the bop and cool schools to come. Young did much of his best work as a sideman in the first few years of his public career, and the first 13 tracks of this collection focus on his work up to 1940. The music on this album is fantastic, as are the musicians especially Lester Young. But the sound is atrocious. I have many of the Ken Burn's cds, and many have a couple or so tracks that have hiss. But on this album, there are only 2 songs, and that is the last two, where the sound is passable. The rest are marred by surface noise and in some cases very bad surface noise. Twelfth Street Rag" for example. you can barely hear Basie's piano playing over the hiss.

In conjunction with documentary filmmaker Ken Burns' ten-part 2000 PBS special, Columbia/Legacy and Verve teamed up to issue a special series of reissues covering much of the history of 20th century jazz. What's here is a very good range of classic jazz from throughout the decades, touching upon performances, many acknowledged classics, from many of the music's giants: Louis Armstrong, Duke Ellington, Benny Goodman, Billie Holiday, Dizzy Gillespie, Charlie Parker, Thelonious Monk, John Coltrane, Miles Davis, Ornette Coleman, and up to Wynton Marsalis and Cassandra Wilson.

Description: First coming to prominence with Count Basie's band in 1936, Lester Young defined a new way to play tenor saxophone, with a soft, airy sound and an understated beat. In the process, he was also creating a new way to play jazz, with a flowing, melodic inventiveness and a detachment that would influence the bop and cool schools to come. Basie's hard-swinging big band was a terrific foil for Young's own novel.
