I was never a jazz aficionado. But I fancy one codicil of Jazz: Detective noir, baby.

It was a dark rain, see; the kind of rain that masked the city, the hoods, the dolls, the dirt. I strolled as vagabond recovering from a day on the sauce, and then there she was: some dame smoking her cigarette, a dame that you knew could hurt you, know will hurt you, but felt possessed despite the greater efforts of my smokes and my esteem ...

Lester Young & His Quintet - Up n' adam




Lester Young (August 27, 1909 – March 15, 1959), nicknamed "Pres" or "Prez", was an American jazz tenor saxophonist and occasional clarinetist.

Coming to prominence while a member of Count Basie's orchestra, Young was one of the most influential players on his instrument. In contrast to many of his hard-driving peers, Young played with a relaxed, cool tone and used sophisticated harmonies, using what one critic called "a free-floating style, wheeling and diving like a gull, banking with low, funky riffs that pleased dancers and listeners alike."

Known for his hip, introverted style, he invented or popularized much of the hipster jargon which came to be associated with the music.

Yeah baby, this is excellent. As it happens, I have a deep affection for avant garde, especially Ornette, and Revolutionary Ensemble (Leroy Jenkins et al). That said, this genre is certainly something I need to explore more carefully, and I am very grateful for the introduction to Mr. Threadgill. I surely do look forward to hearing the rest of Carry the Day...
