Notes

"The tapes for this album were acquired from an ardent fan who fortunately was present the nights Lester Young played the Savoy Ballroom and he had a tape recorder present recording every note. These masters were recorded at the Savoy in New York City in 1950." [quoted from the sleeve notes]

"Re-recorded RCA Victor, New York City, April 10, 1962" [back sleeve]
