In selecting a little over an hour's worth of excerpts from the eight-CD box set The Complete Lester Young Studio Sessions on Verve for this highlights disc, the compilers have resisted the urge to stick with only a collection of Young's more accomplished early works and included a few examples of his deteriorated, but still moving, later work. They have hedged their bets somewhat, however, by not sequencing things chronologically, so that the album closes with a 1949 recording of the pop song "Polka Dots and Moonbeams" rather than, say, "Waldorf Blues" from 1958.

Lester Young - Lester Swings. Artist: Lester Young. Album: The Complete Lester Young Studio Sessions On Verve, 1999.

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

Lester Swings: March 8, 1951 Personnel: John Lewis, piano; Gene Ramey, bass; Jo Jones, drums. This track was taken from a justly famous album called Jazz Giants. Another song worth mentioning here is They Can't Take That Away From Me (track 8), where Young plays clarinet instead of his tenor sax. About this performance Gelly remarks: "in addition to being a rare example of his skill on that instrument," it is "the last indisputably great statement of Young's recorded career.
