Lester Young With The Oscar Peterson Trio
by Lester Young
Released: Jan 1997
Label: Verve Records
Popular belief holds that Prez's pre-military service recordings can't be topped but this collection of the tenor sax marvel's 1950s sessions with Oscar Peterson rank among his very best. The rhythm tunes are complete joys and Young's ballad mastery on tracks such as "I Can't Get Started" and "There Will Never Be Another You" has yet to be matched. Stunning.
