This week on Jazz: All Night, Every Night

Lester Young
Billie Holiday nicknamed him the “Prez” and he originated the slang usage of the word “bread,” meaning money, as well as one of the first to use the word  “cool.” He was also a phenomenal saxophonist. We’ll hear tenor man Lester Young, born on this day in 1909, on the next All Night Jazz with Mike Cornette, tonight at 9:00 PM on WUSF-89.7. (photo: William P. Gottlieb)
