Par Philiplo TOP 500 COMMENTATEURS le 29 novembre 2009
Format: CD
Nous sommes le 12 janvier 1956 et Lester Young grave cet album en compagnie de deux autres excellents souffleurs : le tromboniste Vic Dickenson et le trompettiste Roy Eldridge. La rythmique est assurée par Teddy Wilson au piano et des hommes du Count : Freddie Green à la guitare, Gene Ramey à la basse et Jo Jones à la batterie.
Lester, Teddy Wilson, Gene Ramey , Jo Jones ? En 1956? Cela ne vous rappelle rien?
Regardons en détail les pochettes : le 12 janvier Lester grave cet album
et le 13 janvier avec les trois susnommés il enregistre le mythique Pres And Teddy. Deux disques géniaux en 24 h!

Mais revenons à cet album. Premier morceau «I guess I'ill have to change my plan», manquant parfois de souffle chez les trois souffleurs, mais pas de feeling . Si le souffle manque, l'émotion est à fleur de cuivre. Lester fait penser à un chanteur de blues à la voix éraillée qui nous prend aux tripes, nous livre ses fêlures et ses blessures. Le disque a-t-il été enregistré dans l'ordre des titres? J'aurais tendance à le croire. Car leur jeu s'améliore nettement sur « I don't know what time it was », longue ballade de 10 minutes, avec un Roy Eldridge particulièrement inspiré. Puis une composition très swinguante de Lester « Gigantic Blues », le gaillard a encore du jus tout comme Vic Dickenson. Excellent «This year's kisses» avec un Lester langoureux. Un très bon «You can depend on me» pour finir avec une belle entrée en matière de Roy.

HASH(0xa0e32768) étoiles sur 5 Lester, "Pres" for the friends 23 août 2001
Par JEAN-MARIE JUIF - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
Lester Young.What more can I say ? He was the most incredible jazz player of all times. The king of tenor saxophone.He recorded this session in 1956,three years before his death,with some outstanding companions : Teddy Wilson,Vic Dickenson,Roy Eldridge,Freddie Greene,Gene Ramey and Jo Jones.What a hall of fame!!Just listen to the magnificent version of "I'll guess I'll have to change my plan",a tune rarely recorded.This is some of the greatest Lester, a real masterpiece; for Lester's playing,but also for Teddy Wilson,Jo Jones,and for an amazing Roy Eldridge.I guess you'll play this tune for hours.Roy 's solo on this tune ranks among the greatest things ever done on a trumpet.The four other tunes are very great moments of music too: Lester's improvisations on "I didn't know what time it was" or "this year's kisses",a tune he recorded with Billie Holiday some 20 years before.The Jazz Giants is a good title: noone will ever play that way.

HASH(0xa0e3463c) étoiles sur 5 Wonderful and Perfect 17 février 2004
Par Tony Thomas - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD Achat vérifié
There are not many cuts on this CD, but this is worth it. It is a rare occaision, a group of contest winners, who happen to jibe together as a real functing band who work well together because their past experience of working together and current styles mesh. They create some great music like a band that had practiced together for years.
About 20 years ago a friend of mine found the LP version of this in a thrift store in Los Angeles. When I visited and he played the opening selection I think I'm going to Change My plans, it was one of the most beautiful tasteful and wonderful things I have ever heard. I still go by that. There is something magnificent about that cut that makes me wonder why I don't just play it all day every day, something I did do, once I got a CD player about 12 years ago and got this CD. It is that good.
What works here is that Lester is recorded with a set of SWING musicians who have the same approach to time and variation that he had, although Lester is obviously the master here. In fact, this recording was always one that people like Buck Clayton and other Old Testament Basie survivors pointed to as proof that none of Lester's skills had declined in the 1950s, he just needed a rhythm section like the one here composed of Teddy Wilson (with whom he recorded scores of records for Billie Holiday in the 30s, and his former Basie band mates Freddie Greene and Jo Jones and Gene Ramey who is of the same generation of Southwestern Swing as Lester and Basie.
Vic Dickenson really shines here. Smooth and cremey hot and swinging. It is unfortunate that very few people these days understand the greatness of Little Jazz, Mr. Roy Eldrige whose trumpet provides the necessary contrast to Lester's great sax playing. By 1956 Roy had been appearing with Lester and sometimes with Dickenson for years in Jazz at the Philharmonic's great jams. Listening to these cuts will help you want to hear more of him.

HASH(0xa0e3b0a8) étoiles sur 5 One of the best Pres albums 11 février 2005
Par Jay - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
This is one of the best later-Pres albums out there. People who say that the Pres of the 50's was just a shell of the Pres of the 30's and early 40's with Basie are proven wrong by this recording and many others. Pres has rarely sounded better and the fire that he plays with on "Gigantic Blues" and the soul that he puts into songs like "I Didn't Know What Time It Was" is simply awesome.

This is Pres at his best. Highly recommended.

HASH(0xa0e34f48) étoiles sur 5 The best Jazz album ever made 20 août 2004
Par Morten Friis - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
This is simply the best jazz album ever made..

If you dig the style of Lester in the best shape since 1943 and add the unsurpassed efforts by Vic Dicenson, Roy Eldridge, Teddy Wilson and Jo Jones. Besides Lester the group plays the best they ever did. Wilson has never svung as hard, Roy has never been so precise and hard svung "in control" as here. You will never hear harder swing as in Gigantic Blues or as beautifull and hartbreaking as I didn't know what time is was.

If I only had one album this would be it..

Par Nikica Gilic - Publié sur Amazon.com

What a gigantic group!

Still very much in their prime, many of these jazz giants are old musical and personal friends. For instance, Jo Jones (dm) and Freddie Greene (g) were a vital part of Basie's rhythm machine in the hay-day of Young's tenure with the orchestra; Eldridge (tp) and Young both participated in beautiful Teddy Wilson-Billie Holiday recordings, Young made a perfect quartet album with Wilson (p), Ramey (b) and Jones (Pres and Teddy); Jones and Young (at one number joined by Eldridge) were guests on Count Basie rightly famous "At Newport" reunion album (Count Basie at Newport, Roy played with Young on numerous other occasions as well (including JATP encounters and Young's swan song "Laughin' to keep from cryin'" ( Laughin' to Keep from Cryin') ...

Lester Young had some of his peaks in the 50s (check out also his work with Oscar Peterson from the period - With the Oscar Peterson Trio, particularly when surrounded by the likeminded jazz giants of the previous era and Vic Dickenson is another reason to get this gem: he plays really beautifully throughout this fantastic album... If you're into hot and gentle mainstream, into swing, Lester Young, Roy Eldridge, Vic Dickenson...YOU MUST HAVE THIS!

Why did I wait so long to buy it, I keep asking myself in disbelief. Lyrical and ballad-oriented component of this album prevails and, since these artists have beautiful sound, this will make this album quite accessible to audiences who otherwise don't necessarily concentrate on jazz (for instance to the Diana Krall and Norah Jones crowd).
