I am currently listening to Lester Young, any other recommendations?
Thanks in advance,
Actually, start with the Jones-Smith Incorporated recordings with Basie and Lester Young. Lester's solos on that first recording is just all about swing sax playing you'll ever need to know.rleitch said:Start with the reissue of the "Atomic Basie" sessions from 1957-58 on Bluenote and you'll get a nice dose of the fabulous Marshall Royal too.
