Lester Young, Charlie Parker for Friday, 08/27/10 By George Thomas

We celebrate the birthdays of two of the best jazz sax players, the
Louisiana-born Lester Young, adept on clarinet and tenor sax and Charlie
Parker, master of the alto sax. Sadly, both players died far too young,
Prez from alcohol, Bird from hard drugs.
