Lester Young

~ Person

Annotation

Arguably one of the most important pre-bop tenor saxophonist and clarinetist, Pres' influence spans well beyond Quinichette and Bird.
Available material covers approximately two decades, from the early 40's till his death in 1959, most of it being part of either Savoy or Verve catalogs.
