A Hundred Candles for Lester Young

By Kevin Whitehead, Contributor

Tenor saxophonist Lester Young was born 27 August, 1909, and even at 100 he may be the coolest of cool jazz cats. He was (to single out a quality he prized) an original - a contrarian, even. For awhile he even held the bell of his horn out at a weird, unnatural angle. David Stone Martin once drew him playing in front of the tower of Pisa, leaning the opposite way.

They Say All Music Guide

A viable alternative to the many “chronological” Fletcher Henderson discs on offer, Giants of Jazz’s 1924-1938 collection takes in a wide array of the maestro’s early-jazz and swing sides. The mix is heavy on cuts from the first half of the period covered, including such early highlights as “Shanghai Shuffle” and “The Stampede”; the going is especially sweet here with a double dose of sharp solos (Louis Armstrong, Coleman Hawkins, et al.) and charts (some of Don Redman’s best). And the cream keeps coming, as these 22 tracks take in such bedrock sides as “New King Porter Stomp,” “Stealin’ Apples,” and “Sugar Foot Stomp.” The line of soloists and arrangers is just a consistently impressive, with more Redman work and new gems from Benny Carter and brothers Fletcher and Horace Henderson. The lineup, of course, remains huge too, featuring the likes of Benny Morton, Tommy Ladnier, Chu Berry, and Buster Bailey. A listening pleasure of the historical kind. – Stephen Cook
