My Friend Lester
Billie Holiday & saxophonist Lester Young played & recorded such achingly beautiful music together it was impossible for many to believe they were not lovers.or were they? This magical musical tells the untold story of their romance through some of their own words & the songs they recorded together. Friends? Soul-mates? Lovers? The answers are in their music......
