Four clips of Lester Young from 1959

Here are four audio clips from an interview conducted by French Jazz enthusiast Francois Positif in Paris, France on February 6, 1959 – a few weeks before Lester’s death on March 15 of that year. Careful, Lester lets loose with some colorful language at times!

  1. Peter,

    Your readers may be interested in a film in progress about Lester that uses the Postif interview to tell the story the artists life. There are also many interviews with people who knew Lester. Most importantly Sonny Rollins, Wayne Shorter and I’m working now on a great interview with George Wein on Pres.
