This one goes straight in a medium tempo. Very pleasant. It is always a pleasure listen to Lester and Buck together. Wilson & His Orchestra.
(MT 60) Foolin’ Myself Å Lester Young opens in a brilliant way then Wilson and Buck close the long introduction; Billie carries well this marvelous song by Tinturin, lyrics by Jack Lawrence (who also wrote Tenderly, years later)
(MT 61) Easy Living ÅÅ a delightful rendering.
(MT 62) I’ll Never Be the Same Å Wilson opens with a long solo and Billie takes over with Lester’s obbligati.
