This is not Lester Young backing Sarah Vaughan in the same way that he did with Billie Holiday. Instead most of the album features songs by either Sarah Vaughan or Lester Young and not them performing together.
Given the date of 1947, the recording quality doesn’t compare well with more recent live albums.
