My Friend Lester

My wonderful wife got all creative when we got back from our honeymoon and wrote an amazing play about the music and relationship between Billie Holiday and Lester Young. She’s Billie and I’m going to play Lester! It’s probably the first time the world sees a Swedish, bearded Lester Young. It has been so interesting doing the research for this. I have dived deep into his music and I feel like it has made my own jazz playing better. What a great man!

The show has so far only one performance, 3 August at the Jive Monkey in Brighton. Get your tickets here!
