    Reviews :

    “Part of Verve's Jazz in Paris series, Le Dernier Message de Lester Young is a reissue/repackaging of legendary saxophonist Lester Young's 1959 album Lester Young in Paris. Working with drummer Kenny Clarke, pianist René Urtreger, guitarist Jimmy Gourley, and bassist Jamil Nasser, the group cuts an archetypically Young-ian laid-back swath through such standards "Oh Lady Be Good" and "I Cover the Waterfront."” AllMusic Review by Matt Collar

    In January 1959, Lester Young was in Paris for a series of concerts at the famous Blue Note Club. He plays with Rene Urtreger on piano, Kenny Clarke on drums, Jimmy Gourley on guitar and Jamil Nasser on bass. On March the 4th, 1959, Eddie Barclay decides to record Lester at Studio Barclay, which will be his last album. This legendary recording session is poignant and moving in line with the from Coleman Hawkins ‘Sirius’ and the last recording of Billie Holiday. Lester Young is reduced but the grace and genius are still there! 
Some days later, March 15, 1959, Lester succumb at the Alvin hotel, a few hours after arriving in New York. A heart attack had just one defeat all musicians nicknamed ‘Prez’, The President.
