Lester Leaps In

I lost a bit of sleep picking out this solo note for note.

It all started when I noticed a historical connection between a then-recent album title by featuring Chaka Khan.

That title was "Stompin' At The Savoy" , a namesake tribute to the legend of an era gone but never to be forgotten.

I was really enjoying the process of reading all this cool stuff from sheet music and figuring out how to make it happen the way guys like Lester Young could do effortlessly.
