Get the links and info from here - enjoy the music, and share it freely, please!

I did *not* update any of the files/tags/info - no time for that. I'm sure there's some recent knowledge that corrects some gaffes and omissions in my info.

If this was the enthusiast, community-minded world everyone pretends it to be, some of the 400+ previous grabbers would long have offered an updated version of all the info, but there's been no one getting in touch about that ... feel free to do so, trust me I'd *really* appreciate that!

But most important: enjoy the sound of Pres!

Also drop by at Ethan Iverson's great place to read what he posted for the Lester Young Centennial.
