Lester Young (Tenor Sax) was sitting in the band bus on his way to a gig when a young Charlie Parker “wannabe” came to him and proceeded to play every note possible (and loud) on his alto sax into Lester’s ear. Lester sat there and suffered the racket. When the lad had finished he said to Lester. “So Pres, What did you think of that?” Lester turned and said. “Not bad Lady. But can you tell a story?”
