Billie Holiday often stated that she styled her vocal phrasing to echo the sound of a jazz horn, so it should be no surprise that she found the perfect duet partner in tenor sax player Lester Young. Lady Day and Pres (they bestowed the nicknames on each other) recorded some 60 sides together between 1937 and 1946, many if not all of which have to be considered classics. This three-disc set collects everything the pair did, including alternate takes, and the best tracks are truly revelatory. Given the obvious musical connection on display in these sides, it is telling that both Holiday and Young died only four months apart in 1959. Apparently the world just couldn't handle one without the other.

With his airy, vibratoless tone and sophisticated harmonic imagination, Lester Young (1909-59) was arguably the most influential tenor saxophonist after Coleman Hawkins. As the star in Count Basie's big band and Billie Holiday's favorite soloist, Young's breezy solos, along with his patented porkpie hat and unique hipster jargon, affected legions of musicians. This 8-CD compilation marks the 90th anniversary of Young's birth and contains all of the recordings he made for producer Norman Granz from 1946 to 1959, the last 13 years of Young's life.

With Coleman Hawkins and John Coltrane, Lester Young makes up what could be called the Holy Trinity of jazz tenor saxophonists. On this Verve compilation, we get a wonderful overview of Young's post- Count Basie Orchestra output. Selections featured here range from dates recorded in 1943 up through 1956, three years before the musician's death.
Young's cool-toned, behind-the-beat phrasing is in evidence on all 15 tracks, from the Latin inflected "In a Little Spanish Town ('Twas on a Night Like This)," through the relaxed swing of "Peg O' My Heart," to the uptempo bounce of "All of Me." This CD sizzles with great jazz performances.
