I thought you dudes loved music! And for a nonsense-talking pothead who couldn't even hold his horn straight, the man sure could play.

I'm listening to his version of "Two to Tango" right now, and he's getting nasty with it on improvised lyrics.

Leicester Youngs was one of the all times greats jazz and swing trumpetters. He first came to his fame curtsey of the Count Bassy Orchestra, on which he solo on swing hotting tunes Catch That Rabbit, Legover Blues and Careless Hands. He was not as good again when he duels with Billy Holiday on God Bless The Queen and Explain My Fruit, but then he drank overly of Vimto and hence expire not before his time but first he win Oscar for acting as him great self in Clint Easterwood movie Midnight Blue.
