Format: Audio CD
This is one of the later outings by Lester Young - even the original liner notes acknowledge the uneven and at times quite erratic
quality of his playing. That might put the non-fans of this CD, so I'd like them to consider themselves warned.
HOWEVER there are several moments of pure Pres, with Harry "Sweets" Edison at the very top of his game and other musicians (Peterson, Ellis, Brown...) giving some nice contributions as well.
Pres play clarinet on St. Tropez (the album cut as well as the alternate take), which is always interesting... Although that track has some of the more erratic moments.

Complete personnel:

Lester Young - ts, cl. (on 3&9), Harry "Sweets" Edison - tp (mostly but not exclusively muted),Herb Ellis -g, Ray Brown - b

On 1-3&7-9: Oscar Peterson -p, Louie Bellson - dm,
On 4-6&10-11: Lou Stein -p, Mickey Sheen - dm

The album is recorded in 1957 (1-3, 7-9) and in 1958 (the rest of the album)

If you wish to hear excellent mature, but not too late Pres, instead of this album, take a chance on:
Jazz Giants
Pres & Teddy
