5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful, 11 Jan 2002
This review is from: Pres and Teddy (Audio CD)
Some years ago I bought the LP. It is getting a bit worn so I was delighted to find the CD on Amazon.
Lester is my (and countless others) favourite tenor player. You could name many others but no one else quite has that tone. If you wanted to select the best piano player for Pres then what better than Teddy Wilson: his playing on this cd is pure magic. Gene Ramey and Jo Jones also play wonderfully.
Most of the tracks are standards and the whole group plays with with empathy and with a lovely relaxed style. The last track, Pres Returns, is an upbeat blues : listen to the exchanges between Pres and Joe Jones in the closing bars.
This is my all time favourite Jazz record and belongs in everyones' collection.
