Lester Swings [Giants of Jazz]

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Sean Westergaard
This particular collection of Lester Young performances features him with a variety of sidemen from the late '40s and early '50s. There's nothing especially revelatory here, but Young's soft tone is always a pleasure to hear. The sound quality is listenable, but not great; as such, this one is probably more for the serious Pres fan.
