Watch the Lester Young online guitar lesson by Ton van Bergeijk from Licks to Riffs Guidebook: Jazz
I associate this riff with Lester Young. He was the first person I heard playing it. But that doesn't mean he invented it. It's a different kind of riff, given that it iss repetitive in its pattern. It's a stack of 3rds starting on the root, and it fits minor rhythm changes to a T.
