Product description

Amazon.ca

Presque un album testament. Nous sommes en 1956 et Lester Young s'approche doucement d'une mort qu'il doit sentir insidieuse (une crise cardiaque l'emportera trois ans plus tard). Il enregistre alors en compagnie du pianiste Teddy Wilson cet album touchant et poignant qui semble se promener au clair de lune, au crépuscule d'une vie bien remplie. Celle de Young le fut assurément. Son legs est considérable : il est sans doute à l'origine de nombreuses vocations du jazz west coast, be et même hard-bop. On peut aisément penser que des saxophonistes aussi essentiels que John Coltrane ou Sonny Rollins se sont inspirés de son jeu fin et racé qui tranchait avec celui des "souffleurs" du type Coleman Hawkins. Une sorte de quête ultime illumine ce disque d'une profonde beauté. Sans doute l'un des albums de Lester Young que tout néophyte se doit d'acquérir s'il veut découvrir ce saxophoniste. --Eric Frank
