I have an older Verve LP called "Lester Swings" - but, alas, the Nat Cole sides are really unlistenable due to a bad "promo" pressing. I also have the LP "Giants Three", which includes some of this stuff - Buddy Rich is the drummer - but only 7 tracks/5(5).

  6. An early trio session by Lester Young – recorded with Buddy Rich on drums! The record also features an obscure pianist named "Aye Guy" – Nat King Cole under another name! Guy and Young trade lines in a very nicely relaxed format, and even though the record's mostly all standards, the group works well with the material. The one original track – "Back To The Land" – is a live improvised.
