December 3, 1956 - December 9, 1956. Lester Young in Washington, . This third volume furthers explores the marvelous cache of tapes that have surfaced from Lester Young's 1956 engagement at Olivia's Patio Lounge in Washington, . With the swinging but unobtrusive Bill Potts Trio, he provides the same empathetic support heard on the other volumes in this set, always playing the right changes without overt bop embellishments just for the sake. Potts soloing is always in the pocket and his comping behind drummer Jim Lucht and bassist Norman Williams is equally fine and telling in what it leaves out.

Some jazz critics contend that Lester "The Prez" Young went downhill after World War II, but don't believe it for a minute. The seminal tenorist (who died in 1958) continued to excel during the last years of his life, and one of the great things about his 1950s output is the fact that LPs gave him a lot more room to stretch out. Underscoring the excellence of late period Prez, this album is the last of four volumes documenting an appearance at Olivia Davis' Patio Lounge in Washington, DC in 1956.
1956 was a relatively good year for Lester Young, including a tour of Europe with Miles Davis and the Modern Jazz Quartet and a successful residency at Olivia Davis' Patio Lounge in Washington, DC, with the Bill Potts Trio. Live recording of Young and Potts in Washington were issued later. Throughout the 1940s and 50s, Young had sat in on Count Basie Orchestra gigs from time to time. The best-known of these is their July 1957 appearance at the Newport Jazz Festival, the line-up including many of his colleagues: Jo Jones, Roy Eldridge, Illinois Jacquet and Jimmy Rushing. Don Byron recorded the album Ivey-Divey in gratitude for what he learned from studying Lester Young's work, modeled after a 1946 trio date with Buddy Rich and Nat King Cole. Ivey-Divey" was one of Lester Young's common eccentric phrases.
