Lester Bowie (October 11, 1941 – November 8, 1999) was an American jazz trumpet player and composer Contents. In 1993, he played on the David Bowie album Black Tie White Noise, including the song "Looking for Lester", which was named after him. (Lester and David Bowie were not related - David Bowie's birth name was David Jones. Bowie took an adventurous and humorous approach to music and criticized Wynton Marsalis for his conservative approach to jazz tradition. Duet (with Phillip Wilson).

Duet is an album by trumpeter Lester Bowie and drummer Phillip Wilson recorded in 1978 and released on the Improvising Artists label. It features three duet performances by Bowie and Wilson. Certainly they feed off each other's energy in counterpointed reverie, but the music goes beyond being merely spontaneous or made up on the spot.
