Description
"In the biography You Just Fight For Your Life Danish author Frank Buchmann-Moller presents a comprehensive look at the late tenor saxophonist Lester Young--from his contributions to the world of jazz to his personal problems with drink and drugs. Using in-depth interviews with colleagues and family members--as well as colorful quotes from the saxman himself--the author examines the importance of Young's career from his work with Count Basie and Billie Holiday to his pioneering influence upon not only the 'cool jazz' style of the '50s, but also such contemporaries as Charie Parker, Miles Davis, and John Coltrane. . . . Incidentally, a companion volume ("You Got To Be Original Man? The Music of Lester Young") that chronologically details Young's recording sessions is also available from the publishers." - Radio & Records
