Fine and mellow

It is Monday, they say it's going to rain and I have been listening to a lot of noise lately. Time for some Billie Holiday. This recording is from 1957, and she is surrounded by musicians like Ben Webster and Coleman Hawkins, but please look at her face when Lester Young is playing (the second sax solo)! Fine and mellow, indeed!

Soloists, copied from a comment on YouTube:
Ben Webster - Tenor Sax
Lester Young - Tenor Sax
