Giants Three (aka Lester Young Trio)

LP (Item 528886) Verve, 1946 — Condition: Used
Temporarily Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


4.90 5

An early trio session by Lester Young – recorded with Buddy Rich on drums! The record also features an obscure pianist named "Aye Guy" – Nat King Cole under another name! Guy and Young trade lines in a very nicely relaxed format, and even though the record's mostly all standards, the group works well with the material. The one original track – "Back To The Land" – is a live improvised one, recorded in the studio with no overdubs – and other titles include "I've Found A New Baby", "I Cover The Waterfront", and "Somebody Loves Me".

Verve, 1956. Very Good+ Gatefold
A set with the date of 1956 very firmly planted in the title – but one that's also gone onto become a timeless ensemble session from Verve Records!
