AllMusic Review by

Part of Verve's Jazz in Paris series, Le Dernier Message de Lester Young is a reissue/repackaging of legendary saxophonist Lester Young's 1959 album Lester Young in Paris. Working with drummer Kenny Clarke, pianist René Urtreger, guitarist Jimmy Gourley, and bassist Jamil Nasser, the group cuts an archetypically Young-ian laid-back swath through such standards "Oh Lady Be Good" and "I Cover the Waterfront."
