Sometimes I’m amazed how sexy Lester Young’s tenor sax still sounds to this tired body. Teddy Wilson on piano.
Monday morning says a few more minutes lying in bed, staring at the ceiling fan, wondering what happened.
Count Basie, piano
Herschel Evans, Tenor Sax
Lester Young, Clarinet
Jo Jones, drums
I first encountered this piece while acting in a production of Lorraine Hansberry’s The Sign in Sidney Brustein’s Window. I had to dance drunkenly in the dark to this.
