This is absolutely magnificent stuff. I gave a copy of these recordings to my 89 year old dad, who had seen and met Lester back in the late'40s, and listening to it literally brought tears to his eyes. I can't thank you enough for posting this incredible, historic, music, and for keeping it alive.

ubu said...

190 kbps

What did you expect, prefer 24/96? Makes lotsa sense with airchecks from the forties ... it's there for taking - and for leaving, too.

might be able to find the Piano Workshop one, not the others though (no time for the digging effort, life moved on, and several hundred people here and over on dime grabbed these, they should share them, too! that's part of why music blogging stopped being fun, it's like you're alone in the desert most of the time)

Bonjour Ubu, Just a little hello to express my gratitude for sharing this marvelous set ! Thank you beaucoup !

Brush&Stick said...

Hello and many thanks for re-posting these Prez recordings. Links to cds 1-13 are now inactive. But, cds 14-16 are still good. Pres Lives!

Ruki444 said...

It's the same for me. I only got 16 and 14.

Thanks.

Nikki Night said...

Someone please fix/ reupload these great cd's. As a huge prez fans, it would be amazing to add these CD's to my collection.
Thanks

ubu said...

new links

(in six parts, three discs each and one disc plus bonus tracks for the last)

Brush&Stick said...

Thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you (6 times for 6 links) for this Prez re-post! True treasure!

Mike said...

I had asked for several CTI reposts before I noticed your "Please don't ask for re-uploads of links that are gone" comment. Had I read that first, I would not have asked for the re-ups. I sincerely apologize for asking. You were clear - I simply missed it.

ubu said...

No problem Mike!

I usually just post any comments (moderation proved necessary when the blog was more active and I've kept it like that), though I have hardly any time any more to dig into my drives to look for recordings.

If by chance I happen to stumble over something that has been requested for re-upping, I will do so. (I have to finally fix that botched Bobby Hutcherson track for one!)

Mike said...

I appreciate it. Thanks very much for your understanding.

Todd Earl Winkels Van Buskirk said...

Thank you for this bounty from your seemingly limitless fount of kindness, generosity, and love of music! I'm blown away by this box set!

Nikki Night said...

Seems like the links are not available anymore. Any chance you can re upload this fantastic set (I had it before, but for some reason, I don't and was hoping to re download)
