Lester Willis Young (August 27, 1909 – March 15, 1959), nicknamed "Pres" or "Prez", was an American jazz tenor saxophonist and occasional clarinetist. Coming to prominence while a member of Count Basie's orchestra, Young was one of the most influential players on his instrument

In our earlier Basie-Young package (now out of print) we included the famous first recording session of Lester Young. A glorious chunk of this assemblage includes all of the Count Basie Orchestra's initial recordings from January 1937 and continues through February 1939. The set also features Lester in trio, quartet, quintet and sextet configurations under his own name or others from Basie's roster; a single title with Young fronted by Teddy Wilson, Benny Goodman ("Ti-Pi-Tin"), pianist Sammy Price and an oft-overlooked session from 1941 with vocalist Una Mae Carlisle who is accompanied by a working Lester Young-led band that underlines.
