Being Prez - The Life And Music Of Lester Young


171 Pages
Oxford University Press

A biography of the great Tenor Saxophone player Lester Young, one of the most elusive figures in jazz.
With his sax jutting oddly to one side, his bizarre oblique use of language, and his unique musical rapport with Billie Holiday (who famously nicknamed him "Prez"), Lester Young has become an icon and a cult figure. This marvelous biography illuminates the life and work of this giant of jazz.
