"Lester Young was one of the most influential tenor saxophonists in the history of jazz, a stylist who floated like a butterfly instead of stinging like a bee. His work with the Count Basie Band and singer Billie Holiday during the 1930s and ’40s made laconic phrasing cool. One of the deans of the local saxophone scene, the venerable Dave Karr, is the right guy to do justice to Lester’s legacy, along with guitarist and Clearwater Hot Club founder Sam Miltich." - Britt Robson, Star Tribune
