Review

Review Text 2002's The Complete Savoy Recordings contains all 46 recordings Lester Young recorded for Savoy, including numerous alternate takes. This set is nicely assembled, boasting 20-Bit remastering, with good notes and logical sequencing (even if the successions of alternate takes do skew it a bit toward the historian, not the casual listener), making this the best set to date of Young's pivotal Savoy recordings. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine
