Lazy Lester (real name Leslie Johnson), along with Lightnin' Slim, Slim Harpo, Silas Hogan, Lonesome Sundown, and a few others, is a prime example of what's generally called "swamp-blues". Produced by Jay Miller for the Excello label, Lester's music is a cross of blues, country, early r'n'r, with a smidgen of the Louisiana area style all mixed together. These tracks float somewhere between 3 and 4 "stars". The sound is surprisingly good. The booklet is informative as far as it goes. All in all a good presentation of Lester's music.

The debut by Lester Bowie's Brass Fantasy (an octet consisting of four trumpets, both Craig Harris and Steve Turre on trombones, the French horn of Vincent Chancey, Bob Stewart on tuba and drummer Phillip Wilson) is one of their best recordings. Rather than playing their interpretations of pop tunes (which would be the direction Brass Fantasy would head in the future), this album finds the musicians performing originals by Bowie (including "When the Spirit Returns"), Stewart, trumpeters Bruce Purse and Malachi Thompson and the standard title cut. The music is both whimsical and explorative, making for a colorful set.

Lester Cockney - 11 Tomes
Scénario & Dessin: Franz (Franz Drappier) | Historique | PDF | French | 402MB

Il est des coups de tête, ou de poing, qui peuvent vous entraîner très loin... Enrôlé de force dans l'armée anglaise pour échapper à la potence, Lester « le cockney » Mahoney se retrouve plongé dans l'enfer des guerres de colonisation en Afghanistan, sans la moindre envie de servir cette Albion qui lui a déjà pris son Irlande natale. Heureusement, les chevaux sont les mêmes dans chaque coin du globe, et leurs galop peut entraîner loin celui qui sait leur parler...
Richard Lester - Domenico Scarlatti: The Complete Sonatas Volumes I-VII 38 CD (2006-2007)

Richard Lester - Domenico Scarlatti: The Complete Sonatas Volumes I-VII 38 CD (2006-2007)
Classical | MP3 CBR 320 kbps | 5,84 Gb
Label: Nimbus Records | Release Year: 2006-2007

The complete oeuvre runs to 38 CDs, which will now be packaged in seven boxes. Some may mistrust any classical project that describes itself with the word "marathon," but the endless variety of Scarlatti's sonatas compels the skeptic to make an exception; a complete set turns up any number of deliciously bizarre pieces like the Sonata in A minor, K. 3, from the Essercizi per gravicembalo (CD 1, track 3), with its cascades of five-note runs meandering out into strange chromatic lines.

1999's Superharps was a great record featuring four top blues harmonica players. Two years later, Superharps II was an attempt to duplicate the success with four other harmonica wizards (in this case Carey Bell, Lazy Lester, Raful Neal, and Snooky Pryor). There are five individual features, eight songs that have two harmonicas, and a remake of the closing "Harp to Harp," which has all four harmonica players.

This LP from the collectors' label Jazz Archives includes the soundtrack of the award-winning short film Jammin' the Blues, which in 1944 gave Lester Young, Harry "Sweets" Edison and Illinois Jacquet an opportunity to be seen as well as heard. Not only are the three songs from the film on this set, but also three other previously unheard performances from the same date that did not make it onto the screen. ~ AllMusic

Genre: Jazz

Two very different sessions are combined on this two-LP set. Trumpeter Lester Bowie and a quintet also including Ari Brown on tenor and soprano, pianist Art Matthews, bassist Fred Williams, and drummer Phillip Wilson, are often used to accompany the soulful and gospel-oriented vocals of Fontella Bass and David Peaston (in addition to taking colorful solos). The 12-minute "For Louie" and a suite that is dominated by an emotional version of "Everything Must Change" are highlights; also memorable is a brief version of Albert Ayler's "Ghosts." The second album is quite a bit different, a set of unaccompanied trumpet solos by Bowie that are often quite humorous.

These are another two CDs, to celebrate Lester Young's 100th birthday, which is today (27. avg.). A bunch of rare live and studio recordings, mostly from 1950s. Especially interesting is track with Lester and Dizzy Gillespie, suported by Oscar Peterson, Ray Brown, Herb Ellis and Buddy Rich, recorded on some live occasion almost at the end of Lester's career.
