Sophisticated Sassy

s-l1600 (7)

Another pretty EP from a recent score of Jazz picture sleeves from the fifties.  Sarah Vaughan  “Imagination” on Mercury Records (1955)  From the liner notes:  “A pretty melody to Sarah Vaughan is a plaything to color, to add to, to take from, to twist into graceful new shapes.  It is her creativity and delightful musical imagination that sets her apart for the ordinary merchants of words and music”

Cool Jolly

s-l1600978

Pete Jolly and His Trio  (w/Buddy Clark, Bass and Art Mardigan, Drums) RCA Victor Records (1955)  I picked up a bunch of nice jazz 45s with fun sleeves recently.  This has a nice 50’s beatnik quality to it and that cool line drawing style that David Stone Martin and Jim Flora made famous.  This one done by Romano Ross.
