this was really really cool. and to see Big Sid Catlett hand off the sticks to the incomparable Papa Jo Jones, was exhilarating. those guys are the forefathers of the drums. Papa Jo is sooo incredible!

also, i never realized the very famous Dexter Gordon poster of him sitting with his horn and a hat on, cloaked in smoke was a b&w recreation of this Lester Young pose. the Prez was a cool cat. as far as the photo goes, Dex wins.
