This is as close as we'll ever get to hearing the President, Lester Young, with John Coltrane. And it is close, indeed, for Coltrane's tenor saxophone partner here is Paul Quinichette, who so successfully emulated Young that his fellow musicians nicknamed him the Vice President. Coltrane's drive and passion are contrasted with Quinichette's relaxed approach. But, particularly in "Sunday," the older man was a clear match in the swing department for the young lion Coltrane. The two have a fascinating "conversation" in "Anatomy," a head arrangement on the changes of "All the Things You Are." Included is a previously unreleased "Tea for Two." Cattin' is one of the most attractive items in the annals of tenor saxophone duos.
