    Very sad news. Tremendously underrated player.. Saw him when he was playing with Archie Shepp back in the 60’s. Love the sessions he recorded for BN.

  9. Already mentioned here several years ago that I was to accompany François Postif when he interviewed Lester Young but had to abstain because I had to prépare an important school examination. My eternal regrets! As for Lady Day, caught her when she .sang at the Paris Olympia in November 1958. She was not in top form .but I found her beautiful. Saw her also shortly after when she and Mal Waldron had dinner with Postif and à couple of friends at Chez Gaby’s near Pigalle. She was in top form that night.
