After a tour with Andy Kirk and a few brief jobs, Lester Young was back with Basie injust in time to star with the band as they headed East. Young made history during his years with Basienot only participating on Count 's record dates but starring with Billie Holiday and Teddy Wilson on a series of classic small-group sessions.
In addition, on his rare recordings on clarinet with Basie and the Kansas City SixYoung displayed a very original cool sound that almost sounded like altoist Paul Desmond in the s. After leaving Count inYoung 's career became a bit aimless, not capitalizing on his fame in the jazz world. He co-led a low-profile band with his brother, drummer Lee Youngin Los Angeles until re-joining Basie in December Young had a happy nine months back with the band, recorded a memorable quartet session with bassist Slam Stewartand starred in the short film Jammin' the Blues before he was drafted.
His experiences dealing with racism in the military were horrifying, affecting his mental state of mind for the remainder of his life. Although many critics have written that Lester Young never sounded as good after getting out of the military, despite erratic health he actually was at his prime in the mid- to late-'40s.
He toured and was well paid by Norman Granz with Jazz at the Philharmonic on and off through the '40s and '50s, made a wonderful series of recordings for Aladdin, and worked steadily as a single. Young also adopted his style well to bebop which he had helped pave the way for in the s. But mentally he was suffering, building a wall between himself and the outside world, and inventing his own colorful vocabulary.
Although many of his recordings in the s were excellent showing a greater emotional depth than in his earlier daysYoung was bothered by the fact that some of his white imitators were making much more money than he was.
He drank huge amounts of liquor and nearly stopped eating, with predictable results. Art Tatum. The Billie Holiday Collection, Vol. The Essential George Gershwin. The Finest Vintage Jazz.

Savoy Jazz continues to celebrate it’s revival by releasing a complete anthology of Lester ‘Prez” Young’s recordings for Savoy. This collection is divided into two separate and distinct periods in Young’s life. The first to be explored is the recordings he did in a two-week period in as both a sideman and as a bandleader. It may be very worth noting that the Lester Young Buddy Rich Trio material is available in marginally better sound elsewhere (it's a subjective judgement).
