Taped in Paris, France on February 6th 1959, only weeks prior to Lester Young's death on March 15 of that year.

In an interview conducted by French jazz enthusiast Francois Positif, Lester Young talks about his early influences. It was a tough choice for Lester who was torn between learning the style of Frankie Trumbauer or that of Jimmy Dorsey, his two favorite saxophonists early on.
