Prez, Ella, Hawk, Bird and Buddy

The always oh-so-sweet tenor saxophone of the great Lester Young leads this very "Jazz At The Philharmonic" style swing band - also featuring Ella Fitzgerald, Buddy Rich, Bill Harris, Harry "Sweets" Edison, Flip Phillips, Hank Jones and Ray Brown.

Here's another clip from this 1950 film, featuring Charlie Parker and Coleman Hawkins with the rhythm section.
