Lester Young – Lester Young With The Oscar Peterson Trio (1952)

Lester Young – Lester Young With The Oscar Peterson Trio (1952) : 4/5

 

Lester Young - Lester Young With Oscar Peterson Trio

 

Album de jazz plein de virtuosité avec des ballades lentes magnifiques au saxophone (I Can’t Get Started, Stardust, I’m Confessin’), et des chansons plus rythmées (le solo de piano d’Oscar Peterson sur Just You, Just Me). Un album très agréable à l’écoute.
