Lester Young was unique, just as original and fascinating a musician as he was a human being. He introduced a new way of playing which led to the modern jazz. He was the inspiration for Charlie Parker and countless musicians on all instruments who grew up becoming jazz musicians during the fourties and fifties. The cool jazz of the 1950’s was directly based on Young’s light and relaxed style.
Now, more than 50 years after his death, Young is still an inspiration for many – as the so called mainstream jazz, which never seems to go out of fashion, basically comes from his influence on musicians like Dexter Gordon, Stan Getz, Zoot Sims, Miles Davis, John Lewis, Charlie Christian and others of that generation.
