This is a clip of me playing along with a Lester Young solo with Count Basie et al on Lady Be Good. My teacher suggested this exercise about three months ago, and it's taken me this long to get it half-way decent. In the meantime I've learned a fair bit about keeping a pulse and about phrasing. I'm really impressed by how relaxed Lester sounds on this. He seems to have all the time in the world, and I'm really struggling just to keep up.
