Sunday Jazz – Lester Young and Teddy Wilson

pres-and-teddy

This album “Pres and Teddy” is another of my Sunday listening favourites.

Lester Young

Lester Young

Lester Young is without doubt one of the masters of the tenor sax, here he is identified via his nickname “Pres” which is short for “President” given to him by Billie Holiday.

Teddy Wilson

Teddy Wilson

Theodore Shaw “Teddy” Wilson was a jazz pianist who graced many a record by the all time greats.

For me this 1956 release was one of the highlights from two great careers.
