Smooth operator

IMG_8265

“Smooth Sarah” Sarah Vaughan  Mercury Records EP (UK)  A cool 1959 EP of the divine Sarah Vaughan in a moment of repose – maybe listening to the playback at a recording session or backstage at at club gig .  Smoking and cigarette smoke are a recurring image in the history of jazz photography and therefore found on many classic record covers.  (Check our out “smoking section” for more!).

Psicotic reaction

IMG_8257

Geval Trio / Las Cuatro Plumas “PSICOSIS” Philips Records (Spain)  Released in 1962.  Hitchcock’s “Pyscho” came out in 1960.  This is a kinda creepy, kinda silly accordion/organ (?) number.  This one’s all about the cover!
