Lester MISSING from "Fine and Mellow"

It's true that Lester Young and Billie Holiday appeared, memorably, in the LIVE CBS broadcast "The Sound of Jazz", performing Billie's song "Fine and Mellow"; but for the soundtrack album of the song - from which this cd's cut is taken - Lester Young was too ill to participate and does not appear. So it's WRONG to promote this collection as a collaboration between the two artists on all the cuts.

What's needed is a digital release of the splendid original BROADCAST soundtrack of "The Sound of Jazz"; Pumpkin Records released the broadcast version on LP many years ago, but even those copies are difficult to find.

So - don't buy this version of "Fine and Mellow" and expect to hear Lester Young.
