Lem Winchester was born March 19, 1928 in Philadelphia, PA and died January 13, 1961 in Indianapolis, IN.

While this is the most comprehensive and accurate discography on Lem Winchester ever produced, there still may be omissions and errors. Please help if you can.

Thanks to contributors:

David Arnold, Jürgen Bliedtner, John Chowning, George Lindamood, Michael Weil

Special thanks to all the staff at the Rutgers Institute of Jazz Studies where I had access to virtually every issue listed in the discography as well as the various relevant published sources.
