Tony Scott in New York City - mid 20th Century

from Hear Me Talkin' To Ya: The Classic Story of Jazz as Told by the Men Who Made It, page 339:

I remember always going to Minton's to play and listen even while I was at Julliard. There was one night when Ben Webster, Don Byas, and Lester Young were there and the three of them blew together, each with a different style and each blowing.
