Lester Willis Young, nicknamed Prez, was born in Woodville, Mississippi, on August 27, 1909. Lester was taught how to play music by his father, Willis Handy Young, who was a very good musician in his own right. Lester was first taught to play the violin, the trumpet, and the drums. Several famous musicians including Charlie Parker, Dexter Gordon, and Al Cohn were greatly influenced by Young. A majority of the songs Young played while in the Basie band where 32 bar blues with an AABA structure.

Lester Young considers him as the first president of the tenor saxophone. In 1969, Coleman Hawkins died after succumbing to the effects of pneumonia at age 64 and is buried in Woodlawn Cemetery at the Bronx. Sonny Rollins, the great tenor saxophonist says that Coleman was his greatest influence in his music. He was then drafted into the military in 1944 during World War II. He was court-martialed for being found in possession of drugs and alcohol and was dishonourably discharged in 1945 after serving a year in detention.

Lester Young, nicknamed Pres by legendary jazz singer Billie Holiday was, in his time, the undisputed president of the tenor saxophone.

Lester Young (1909-1959), the tenor saxophone virtuoso known to the world as "Prez," left an indelible mark on the Swing Era, first through his groundbreaking his work with the Count Basie Orchestra and other groups. Picking up where earlier tenor sax innovators left off, Frank Trumbauer and Coleman Hawkins in particular, Young developed a less aggressive approach, eschewing an intense and fiery style in favor of a relaxed, "cooler" but still flowing, dynamic and lyrical.
