    San Diego, California
    Difficulty Level:
  • June 23, 2008 Play like Prez

    What a bonus!! A note for note transcription of performances that I easily accessed on cd 's that I already owned. Lester sounds sort of easy and sloppy (laid back). However I found out that he was quite a musician and very talented in order to make his music sound...

    easy and cool! It took a lot of work to come up with a facsimile of lester, but I learned a lot of new licks just as if I was taking private lessons from the master tenor king himself!! A must have for any serious tenor player.
