Happy Birthday, Prez!

On this date in 1909, Lester Young was born. If not for a few unfortunate lifestyle choices, he would have been 99 years old. (This isn’t extremely far-fetched, his brother Lee Young, a drummer, passed away earlier this month at the age of 94.)

Hopefully, there are some Lester Young centennial tributes in the works!
