Description
In 1959, the influential tenor saxophone legend Lester Young died alone in the Arvin Hotel in Manhattan at the age of 49. David Meltzer's poetic meditation on the last year of Young's life is neither a work of fiction nor a biography; these Beat Generation–style fragments are written in a brash, honest, ebullient style inspired by the jazz of the 1940s and 50s. Meltzer provides a biographical introduction to "Prez" and comments on his reasons for writing the book, which also includes 15 black and white photographs.
