Monthly Motivation-Charlie’s Dream

Anyone that has talked guitar  with me knows what a huge Charlie Christian fan I am, but the motivation to play music this month is by two horn players, Buck Clayton and Lester Young with their back-to-back solos on tune called Charlie’s Dream. Although I’ve heard this song hundreds of times, I still get chills when I hear these two solos. The three laughs Buck does at 1:15 into the song kills me. Freddie Green’s on this one as well playing rhythm.

  • You said it! Prez was a HUGE inspiration to Charlie Christian too. As I am sure you well know Christian learned several of Young’s recorded solos and interpolated them into his own solos over his brief recording career.
