"He was original all the way round."
— Jazz master Roy Haynes describes Lester Young


Tenor saxophonist Lester Young, or "the Prez," was known for his unique voice, his gentle style of playing . . . and his signature porkpie hat.

This month, that hat and his three surviving instruments joined the collection.
You can read more musicians' memories of Lester Young in our jazz oral history collection.
