Sal Mosca set the wheels in motion somewhat for Billy Lester. But the obscure pianist took his time to know his own sound and then let us in on it. Did Lester's purism however hold the pianist back or is he just not that bothered about all the PR malarkey part of today's relentless cycle in getting the word out? With Rufus Reid on bass and Matt Wilson on drums recorded in 2019, you'll make a stab at the answer perhaps. Whatever your hunch Jazz Night in America feeds the imagination all over again.
