Me ha gustado mucho el relato sobre las fotografías tomadas un Lester Young. Interesante son las fotos tan espontáneas de Lester.
Exelente sitio, me he permitido hacer un enlace con el mío.
Saludos cordiales

Thank you for that interesting piece on Lester. I interviewed him in Philadelphia a couple of months before these photos were taken and, if I recall correctly, he had recently been released from a hospital. How sad that he was not given more media attention earlier on. That, considering his importance, is truly inexplicable.

Everyone deserves a break occasionally, even Marc Myers, but the same Lester photos day after day, however eloquent, still come as a shock to all the JazzWax fans you have spoiled with your near-daily, nose-to-grindstone, ear-to-ground, eye-on-the-prize views and reviews. Enough with the Present; bring on the once and future Wax!
