Lester has a real love for the Lord. His love is best expressed through his musical artistry and testimony, such as, contemporary Christian worship and praise favorites, traditional hymns and timeless classical jazz tunes on the acoustic guitar.
Learning to play the guitar as a child (holding the guitar upside down), never stopped Lester from creating the music and melodies, even with odd tunings. Directing his energy to reaching people through his music and sharing the love of Christ at the same time, has opened doors in prisons, coffeehouses, corporate events, music festivals and many other venues throughout the Kansas City area and beyond. Lester has performed in Canada, Norway and other regions.
Lester continues to perform and has shared the stage with many leading artists. Lester has also helped to lead worship and praise celebrations in churches and coffeehouses. Lester has premiered and worked with dramas and instrumental ensembles, including Lester Estelle & Friends.
Lester has produced five (5) instrumental CDs plus a Nu Creation Christmas CD. The music offers an acoustic/jazz flavor to many Christian favorites.
Psalm 43:3; Hymns for Him; Hymns for Him II; Nu Creation Christmas and Just the Basics.
His latest CD, entitled SEASONS, is a smooth jazz CD with all original music. Some years ago, Kansas City had a smooth jazz station called 106.5. Everyone enjoyed that station; we played it at work, at home and in the car. SEASONS reflects that same flow of music and smooth tunes. The interwoven lead melodies features guitar, saxophone, bass and piano.
