John S. Wilson's NY Times obituary and some Lestorian sounds

For starters, here's a link to John S. Wilson's obituary in April 27, 1984 edition of the New York Times:
Count Basie, 79, Band Leader And Master of Swing, Dead

And here, on my main blog, you can check out in MP3 @ 320 kbs format most of the live recordings available by Basie's greatest ever sideman, Lester "Pres" Young:
Lester Young Live and Private Recordings in Chronological Order
